Getting a Prescription Filled Just After Release
People who have been on prescription medication during incarceration can obtain a two-week supply of that medication at no cost by going to the Walgreens Pharmacy at 1315 N. State Street in Provo (801-616-5223) within 72 hours of release. The pharmacy is open 24 hours a day every day, including Sundays and holidays. Please keep in mind that it can take up to a few hours for the pharmacy to get the information they need from jail medical to fill the prescription.
Note: In 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) began requiring insurance companies to cover mental health and substance addiction treatment as part of its 10 essential health benefit categories.
