Frequently asked questions:
What do I need to bring with me to get a prescription filled?
- UK Student ID
- Insurance card
- Prescription benefit card (if your insurance carrier provides one)
- Prescription paper or old bottle if it's a refill
Can my clinician from home call in a prescription to the Student Health Pharmacy?
Yes, but you will not have the benefit of any possible UHS discounted rate. The Kentucky Clinic/Student Health Pharmacy will fill a student's prescription written by a non-UK clinician one time only. Then the prescription must be written by a UK (or UHS) clinician or the student can take the prescription to a non-UK pharmacy.
How do I get birth control?
Students can call 323-APPT (2778) to schedule an appointment in the University Health Service Women's Health Clinic. Birth control pills, the birth control patch (Ortho Evra®), the vaginal ring (NuvaRing®) and the birth control shot (Depo Provera®) are available by prescription in the University Health Service and Kentucky Clinic pharmacies. Students receive a discounted price if the prescription is written by a UHS clinician.
How much does it cost for contraceptives?
Most contraceptives prescribed by University Health Service clinicians can be purchased at the Student Health Pharmacy (Kentucky Clinic Pharmacy) at a student discount. The pharmacy is able to offer some oral contraceptives for as a low as $10 per pack.
Does the UK Student Pharmacy have Plan B?
Yes, and at a discounted rate. Females or their male partner, who are 17 years or older, may pick up Plan B at the UK Student Health Pharmacy without a prescription.
