What information do you need to fill my prescription?
Bring your OSU Student ID with you. Also bring your Prescription Insurance Card. A valid government-issued photo ID is required for all controlled-substance prescriptions, so please bring your ID with you.
Can someone else (roommate, friend, family member, etc.) pick up my prescription(s) for me?
Yes, if someone is going to pick up your order for you, you must call the Pharmacy and tell us who that will be. They must present valid picture ID.
How long does it take to fill a prescription?
It takes about 15-20 minutes to fill a prescription. There are certain situations that will increase normal wait time. Some patients have multiple prescriptions, insurance problems, the pharmacist might need to consult with the physicaian about a potential problem with the prescription, or a patient may need additional counseling by the pharmacist. All of these things may make your wait longer. The pharmacy staff is working as quickly as possible to accurately fill your prescriptions, check for potential drug interactions and/or drug allergies, follow all laws and regulations, and make sure that you feel comfortable with the medication that you are given and have had all of your questions answered before you leave the facility.

Most third party insurance plans are accepted. Contact your insurance provider or check with our pharmacist to determine if your plan is accepted. We file claims to most insurance plans for you. We will need a copy of your pharmacy insurance card. Once we have this information we will keep it on file for you. For those students enrolled in the University Student Health insurance plan, 90% of the cost of your prescription(s) are covered.
