2. Does the pharmacy accept all insurance cards?
The Pharmacy accepts most major prescription insurance plans. Please bring your Prescription Insurance Card.
3. Can I bring in a prescription or a refill from an outside doctor or pharmacy?
Yes, the pharmacy can fill prescriptions written by doctors outside of the Health Center. Also, we will be glad to call an outside pharmacy to transfer any remaining refills you might have on a prescription at that location. Allow us a day to make this transfer. Please provide the pharmacy phone number and the prescription name or number if possible.
4. How can I get my prescription refilled?
We offer 24/7 capabilities: on the internet and by phone. You will need your current prescription number to use these options. You can always call the Pharmacy and speak to a pharmacy staff member who will be glad to refill your prescription.
5. I don’t have time to wait. When is the best time for me to come in?
The busiest times of the day are between the hours of 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm. Mornings and evenings are the least busy.
6. I’m going away for the summer (holidays, semester, etc). How can I be sure to have enough medication?
We will gladly work with your insurance company to see if they allow for a vacation supply. If there is no insurance involvement, you can get enough medication to get you through the time you will be gone. We can always transfer your prescription to your home town pharmacy for the summer and transfer back any remaining refills in the Fall.
7. Can my roommate (friend, family member, etc.) pick up my prescription for me?
If someone is going to pickup your order for you, you must call the Pharmacy and tell us who that will be.

We have recently expanded our over-the-counter (OTC) section. These items cann be purchased by bringing them to the pharmacy counter to be scanned and placed on you UHC account. Payment is made at the cashier’s desk.
