The VA Prescription History table has five column headings. Each prescription is referenced by its prescription number.
The information in the table is sorted first by Fill Date and then by Prescription Name. The triangle symbol next to Fill Date means this column can be sorted in ascending or descending order. You can select any of the underlined column headings to sort the table information.
Fill Date - For an Active prescription, the Fill Date is the date the prescription was last refilled. Otherwise, the Fill Date means the next possible refill date. If a prescription has never been refilled, the Fill Date is the date that it was first issued.
Prescription - This column shows the name and number of the prescription to be refilled. The instructions are displayed below the prescription number.
Status - This column displays the status of the prescription:
Active: A prescription is listed as Active if it is available for refill. To refill the prescription, you must open the Refill VA Prescriptions page by selecting the left navigation bar.
Active: Submitted: Submitted means that a refill request has been received by My HealtheVet, but has not been processed yet.
Active: Refill in Process: This status shows that a refill request is being processed by the pharmacy. When a prescription is in the Active: Refill in Process status, the Fill Date will show when the prescription will be ready for delivery via mail by a VA Mail Order Pharmacy.
Active: Hold: The prescription has been put on hold by the pharmacy or the provider and is not available to be refilled.
Discontinued: Discontinued means the prescription has been discontinued by the manufacturer of the drug or the VA provider.
Expired: This means that the prescription has expired.
Facility - Facility is the name of the VA facility where the prescription was originally issued.
Prescription Tracking - Track Delivery button is shown in this column if the prescription was filled by the VA Mail Order Pharmacy and mailed in the last 45 days.
Updates to the prescription list or a change in status will be visible after midnight each calendar day.
