Medications from an Outside Pharmacy
If the Student Health Center does not have a needed medication, the student will be given a prescription to take to the pharmacy of his/her choice. Students may need to call the pharmacy in advance to determine the cost and to arrange payment.
If a student has prescription coverage through an insurance carrier they should be aware of which pharmacy accepts the insurance and should have the prescription insurance card available.
