Pharmacy lines and mail delays holding up your prescriptions? Here’s how to avoid health hold-ups


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be experiencing mail order delays and longer lines at the pharmacy. Read below to find out why and how to get the medication you need, exactly when you need it - without delay.

Why am I experiencing mail-delivery delays with my medication prescriptions?

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on all of our lives, you may be experiencing mail delays. The pandemic has shortened check-out lines but bloated delivery services. Over 170 million prescriptions were filled in 2019, a number that has climbed 20% since the onset of COVID-19.

Recent sweeps of USPS policy changes have triggered notable delays in deliveries, from Amazon packages to mail-order prescriptions, causing significant congestion in these services. Investigations of five major pharmacies that offer mail-order service revealed an increase of delivery times from 18-32%. Such instances can create severe dilemmas for many, especially those with chronic health conditions. Overall, this disruption leaves the patient with two conflicts: to risk exposure to COVID-19 by waiting in line at their local pharmacy, or chance the late arrival of vital medications.
