FORT SILL – Reynolds Army Health Clinic (RAHC) is implementing several changes in an effort to limit the spread of coronavirus to Soldiers, family members, retirees, and dedicated employees.

The east entrance continues to be the only one available for patients and visitors, because of enhanced screenings that began earlier this month. All patients and visitors will be screened for coronavirus (COVID-19) prior to entrance to the clinic.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend limiting the size of gatherings at any given time to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Prescriptions

Starting 25 March the main pharmacy at RAHC implemented a mandatory prescription drop-off that will facilitate social distancing practices. Prescription drop-off boxes are available in the main pharmacy, and outside the east entrance of the clinic, for patients with new prescriptions as well as patients with written prescriptions from off-post providers.

TRICARE Online and the RAHC Pharmacy automated refill line at 580-558-2442 are available for prescription refills. Prescriptions will be available for pick-up three hours after drop-off. Patients who leave their prescriptions after 2 p.m. will be able to pick up their prescriptions the next business day after 8 a.m. The prescription process will remain unchanged for pediatric patients and the Urgent Care Clinic.

Exceptions to the mandatory prescription drop-off policy will be made for acutely ill patients who have been prescribed antibiotics, physically disabled patients, and patients who have previously called in refills or who are returning to pick up prescriptions.

In addition to the pharmacy, the RAHC Referral Management Office (RMO) and Patient Administration Division (PAD) will temporarily suspend face-to-face consultations. For any questions or concerns regarding referrals, call Humana at 1-800-444-5445 or the Referral Management Office at 833-286-3732, option 2, option 2.
