Your question is where can you get a prescription (refill) at no cost?
The only place I can imagine that would give you a refill of medication you've been prescribed would be either the person who first prescribed it to you, or a personal relative. Whenever doctors prescribe medications or refills, they assume both medical and legal responsibility and liability for the person who is taking the medication. Doctors all have multimillion dollar malpractice insurance because of how common it is for people to sue doctors, for things that don't go according to plan or expectation. In order for you to have a prescription given to you for free, the doctor would have to be willing to accept liability for any potential problems, with no compensation for them. To my perspective, that seems like a difficult proposition. Have you tried looking at options for physicians online?
I see. I understand, from your perspective, you don't need an exam, and you just need someone to look at your vitals... but, from the physician's perspective, they have to trust their entire career and future earning capacity to the remote, even unlikely, possibility that things don't go exactly according to plan... that's a tough sell.
I think it will be tough to find anywhere that is "nearly free" but you may be able to find options online that are more reasonable. I would recommend you try www.treatmd.com . you can find someone, select prices that work for you, and prescriptions can be sent for you.
How else may I help ?
I'm happy to continue chatting until you feel satisfied with the help you've received.
