To qualify for available pricing discounts, you must have a prescription written by a UK clinician, excluding UK College of Dentistry physicians, and have had a clinic visit within the last 365 days.

Note: Your clinician from home can call in a prescription to the UHS Pharmacy, but you will not have the benefit of any possible UHS discounted rate. 

If you have any questions, please ask a member of our pharmacy team.

Weekends and Holidays

There are no weekend or holiday hours at the UHS pharmacy.

For prescription pick up on weekends, students may use the Kentucky Clinic Pharmacy at 740 South Limestone, just inside the main entrance.

What to Bring to the Pharmacy

When getting your prescription filled, always remember to bring the following: student ID, insurance card, prescription benefit card (if your insurance carrier provides one), prescription paper or old bottle if it is a refill.

It is very important that you bring your prescription card so your medication costs can be properly filed with your insurance.

Abuse, misuse, diversion and illegal sale of prescription drugs are some of the largest threats facing the safety and welfare of the citizens of Kentucky. The Kentucky All Schedule Prescription Electronic Reporting System (KASPER) tracks controlled substances dispensed within the state. A KASPER report shows all scheduled prescriptions for an individual over a specified timer period, the prescriber and the dispenser. KASPER is designed to be a source of information for practitioners and pharmacists and an investigative tool for law enforcement and regulatory agencies.

KASPER is not intended to prevent people from obtaining needed medications. By law, UHS is required to participate in KASPER efforts. Per the guidelines established by Kentucky state legislation, when prescribing controlled substances, we will pull a KASPER report on the patient to verify prescribing privileges. This is for your protection as a patient and for our protection as a health care provider.
