Oregon’s “90-day Supply” Law

Oregon law (ORS743A.063) allows the prescription of up to a 90-day supply of medications, other than controlled substances or psychotropic medications, to patients. While this has long been an option for mail-order pharmacies, local pharmacists and prescribers can provide this convenience directly to their patients.


The 90-day supply statute was enacted in an effort to improve patient adherence to treatment plans by reducing trips to the pharmacy and providing co-pay savings.

 

Under the statue, payers must provide payment for a 90-day supply if all of the following are met:

 

- The prescription drug is covered by the program or plan

- An initial 30-day supply of the prescription drug has been previously dispensed to the program or plan member

- The quantity of the prescription drug dispensed does not exceed the total remaining quantity of the prescription drug that the prescribing practitioner authorized to be dispensed through refills.
