Make an appointment for medication therapy management at an Essentia clinic near you.
To save you money, we’ll substitute a less expensive, Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved generic drug when possible. We make this substitution only if the drug is safely interchangeable with, and a therapeutic equal to the brand-name drug prescribed by your health care provider. Essentia Health pharmacies offer generic medications for as low as $5 a month.
If you object to a substitution, tell us when you order your medication or before you leave the pharmacy.

The process for requesting a refill or renewal is the same. In both cases, call your pharmacy. For a renewal, your pharmacist will contact your doctor or health care provider to get their approval. Please allow two to three business days for renewals.
