MyChart Now Allows Online Prescription Refills

Published: 11/30/2017

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — MyChart now allows users to request refills from the health system pharmacies, select home delivery or pharmacy pickup, and receive email or text alerts about the prescription's status.

Samaneh Wilkinson, PharmD, pharmacy director, offers a few tips to use the new online refill features.

First refill since Oct. 24? Email first

MyChart refills only work for prescriptions refilled after Oct. 24, when the pharmacy module was added. To request a refill of a prescription for the first time since that date, email myrph@kumc.edu and include the refill number in your message. Once prescriptions have been converted to the online tool, they can be managed that way.
