An Important Message About UHS Pharmacy Holiday Closings

The UC Student Health Pharmacy will be closed
December 23rd  through January 2nd 2017.

  • The Holmes east campus location will be open for clinical services but prescription service will NOT be available except for pick-up of prescriptions previously filled with requested delivery to the Holmes location.

  • If you have prescriptions that will need to be filled during that period, please plan ahead by filling your prescriptions before December 22nd. 
     
  • Persons having health insurance purchased through the University of Cincinnati needing prescriptions filled between December 23rd and January 2nd will be allowed to refill their prescriptions early at the regular copay amount.

  • Those with private insurance should arrange to have their prescriptions transferred prior to 4:00 PM December 22nd because your insurance may not approve an early refill at your regular copay amount.

  • After closing December 22nd, new prescriptions needed for immediate use can be filled at an outside pharmacy. If you are trying to refill a prescription you may need to contact the practitioner who prescribed the medication to write a new prescription for your medication to fill at an outside pharmacy.  

  • If you have purchased health insurance through the University you will be required to pay the full price for the medication at the time of pick-up. You have the option of submitting a claim form for reimbursement of 80% of the price if the price is greater than the regular copayment of $15 for generic drugs and $30 for brand name drugs.

  • The requirement to meet the $500 deductible will be waived for prescriptions filled on or between December 23rd through January 2nd.  The claim form can be downloaded from the UC Student Health Insurance website. (http://www.med.uc.edu/student-health-insurance/id-card-and-form)
     
  • If you have private insurance you can present your prescription at a pharmacy that is a provider for your insurance and pay the usual fee associated with your insurance.
