The Student Health Services Pharmacy is located on the ground floor of the Hilda Williams Infirmary Building (Student Health Services.) It is staffed by registered pharmacists, who are available five days a week to fill prescriptions, provide drug information, and answer health-related questions. In addition, a variety of over-the-counter (OTC) items are available for purchase by students at competitive prices. Payment on any pharmacy purchases can be made by check, cash, credit card, Husky Bucks or charged to the university fee bill.
Eligibility for Care
Pharmacy services are available only to Storrs campus students. Students must present their valid UConn identification card upon each visit.
- We can only fill prescriptions from Student Health Services prescribers, including Counseling & Mental Health Services pyschiatrists and nurse practitioners. Please do not ask your home healthcare provider to submit prescriptions to us for filling.
- We may be able to special-order certain items not routinely stocked within one business day.
- We can bill prescriptions directly to a variety of health insurance plans.
We accept a variety of insurance plans to which we directly bill prescription medications including the university sponsored insurance plan and Connecticut Medicaid. Ask us for more information.
Prescription insurance billing is separate from Medical insurance billing at Student Health Services. Unlike medical claims that are submitted after the visit by our Business Services Team, prescription claims are processed in real-time at the Pharmacy. That is why it is so important that we have accurate prescription insurance information at the time we process your prescription.
Please be aware that there are some plans with which we do not participate and are unable to submit claims to these insurers on your behalf.
Many plans have a prescription coverage card that is separate from the medical insurance card you supplied at the time of your medical visit. Be sure to bring both cards to every visit at Student Health Services.
If you do not have your prescription insurance card with you, you may provide us with your coverage information using this form. Sources for this information include your parent’s or guardian’s prescription insurance card, your pharmacy at home or the insurance company itself. You may also choose to have a copy of your prescription insurance card faxed to 860-486-0792. Or have someone text you a photo of your prescription insurance card, making sure the information below is clearly visible in the picture.
If you elect to pick up your prescription prior to providing our pharmacy with your insurance information, we can give you a brief, same-day grace period for submitting the information. Complete insurance information must be received in the pharmacy by 5 p.m. on the date of service; otherwise the resulting charge(s) may be billed to your student fee bill.
