Health Center

Prescriptions and Medications

The Health Center has a drug dispensary with a limited formulary of commonly used medications, including prescription drugs, certain contraceptives, and some over-the-counter medications.

Because we do not have a full pharmacy, it is not possible for students to "transfer" prescriptions written by their personal M.D. or another clinic. In order to purchase prescription medications from us (including birth control pills), a student must be seen at the Health Center by one of our medical providers who will prescribe and dispense the medication. Since we are not a pharmacy we have no way to bill medications through your insurance drug benefit plan, so charges for medications will be billed to your bursar account or can be paid for by check or TU OneCard retail points. You may be able to submit the bill to your own drug plan for reimbursement but you are responsible for payment.

For students who want to purchase prescription contraceptives from us and have an active prescription from an outside health care provider, schedule a regular primary care or GYN appointment and bring the results of your last well woman GYN annual exam (e.g STD tests, PAP,etc.).

If you have never been on prescription contraceptives before, you will need to attend an informational contraceptive seminar by our sexual health educator and then schedule an annual well woman GYN exam with one of our medical providers. You must call the Health Center at 410-704-2466 and press Option 3 to schedule these appointments. Do not schedule an appointment online or prior to attending the seminar.
