The Student Health Center maintains a limited formulary of prescription and non-prescription medications. If we do 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. Students are responsible for the cost of medications obtained at an outside pharmacy even if the medication is prescribed by a student health center provider.
