On 1/1/2020, Marquette University’s prescription drug plan will begin using Postal Prescription Services (PPS), a subsidiary of The Kroger Co. (parent company of Pick ‘N Save and Metro Market), as its mail order pharmacy. This change only affects Marquette University’s mail order pharmacy. Your prescription drug coverage will continue to be managed by Navitus.

How to transfer existing medications

Most of your information will automatically transfer to PPS via an Open Refill Transfer process. This includes your name, member ID number and prescriptions with refills remaining. However, certain prescriptions cannot be transferred:

  • Controlled medications.
  • Prescriptions with no refills remaining.
  • Prescriptions written more than 12 months ago. This applies even if you have refills remaining.

Certain information cannot be legally transferred. This includes credit card numbers and drug allergies. Even if your prescriptions were able to be transferred from the previous mail order pharmacy, you will need to call PPS Customer Service at 1-800-552-6694 to obtain your new PPS Rx #(s) on file to link to your web account in order to complete your registration. Therefore, you will need to register with PPS before you can begin using this benefit. You can register starting 1/1/2020. Prescription refill orders can be requested through PPS beginning 1/1/2020.

How to register with Postal Prescription Services

You can sign up online at or you can call PPS toll-free at 1-800-552-6694 starting 1/1/2020.

Please allow 10 - 14 calendar days from the day you submit your order to receive your medicine(s). Prescriptions should be ordered from the current mail order pharmacy if they are needed within the first 2 weeks after the 1/1/2020 transition date.

If you have any mail order questions, call PPS at 1-800-552-6694 starting 1/1/2020.

If you have any questions about your pharmacy benefits, call Navitus Customer Care at 1-866-333-2757.
