The health center has a small pharmacy that carries most of the commonly prescribed and used medications in primary care. The cost of the medications dispensed from the health center pharmacy is nominal and is charged to your student account. This will not be reimbursed by the student health insurance. Other non-CIT UHC insurance plans may reimburse prescription items purchased at the health center. You will have to check with your individual plan. A formal receipt can be provided by the front office receptionist.
The Student Health Center Nurse Practitioners may call in your prescription to a pharmacy of your choice. You will simply go to the pharmacy at your convenience and pick up your prescription. Be sure to bring your insurance card and identification with you. Some student insurance plans offer mail- order service; you will have to contact your individual plan to find out how that works and what your
co-pays for prescriptions (brand and generic) will be.
Mail –Order Prescriptions for CIT UHC Students
Mail-Order prescriptions work best for ongoing medication and refills. For example, if you need immediate medications for an infection, you wouldn’t use the mail-order service. But if you need ongoing medication (for example, for a chronic problem such as asthma), it is very convenient to have your medication delivered to you in the mail. You will save money and avoid repeated trips to the pharmacy.
To obtain your prescription medication through mail-order delivery, simply pick up an UHC Rx Delivery mail-order form at the Student Health Center and mail your prescription to:
Prescription Drugs: When you use UHC Preferred (PPO) pharmacies, the Plan pays 80% of the cost (no deductible). See the Prescription Drug List.
The first time you fill a prescription through the mail-order service, it is a good idea to ask for a two week supply called to a local pharmacy (this is to hold you over while waiting for your medication through the mail), and one for a 90-day supply with refills to send with your mail-order form.

Mail-Order for non CIT UHC Insurance - The health center can assist with prescriptions, however, please check with your specific insurance carrier on process and requirements.
