They will be able to ship you a new card, usually within three to five days. If you need to use your coverage before the new card arrives, you can also ask them the procedure for doing so. They can likely give you the information your pharmacy will need. They key to replacing a prescription drug card is to get it replaced immediately after you realize it is missing. If you put the task off, you will likely never get around to it. Therefore, you should make the call as soon as you can.
