About Our Services
We place an emphasis on individual patient counseling. We discuss drug interactions, dosage, appropriate storage and side effects.
We fill prescriptions from Nebraska Medicine–University Health Center medical providers AND non-University Health Center and out-of-state prescriptions. Bring your insurance card or a copy/photo of the card to your first visit. Please note that some insurance providers have separate medical and prescription cards, in which case you will need to bring your prescription card only.
To transfer your current prescriptions to the University Health Center, simply bring in the bottle with the label indicating you have refills remaining. We recommend requesting refills 48 hours in advance if you do not have refills remaining.
We offer a variety of over-the-counter medications and wellness items at an affordable price. Many are under $5. 24-hour doses of acetaminophen, antacid and ibuprofen are available to students for free.

Yes. Have the prescription number, which is printed on the prescription container and on your pharmacy receipt, handy. We recommend requesting refills 48 hours in advance if you do not have refills remaining.
You can request refills by app, online or by phone:
Prescription information is confidential by law, so we prefer that you pick up a new prescription so we can explain the drug to you personally.
You can send someone else to pick up a refilled prescription. Call 402.472.7457 in advance to authorize another person to pick up the prescription refill. For your protection, the person picking up the prescription will be asked for identification.
We will provide prescription information to you only, unless you give written authorization to release this information. However, if you are using insurance belonging to your parent(s), the insurance company may or may not contact the person responsible for that insurance policy. All University Health Center Pharmacy information is strictly confidential.
Yes, you have the same access to the University Health Center Pharmacy as University of Nebraska-Lincoln students. However, for non-UNL students, full payment must be made at the time the prescription is picked up.
Students may use the University Health Center Pharmacy for one semester after they have left the University of Nebraska.
Patient assistance programs are run by pharmaceutical companies. These programs help patients who qualify to receive medication free of charge or at a reduced rate. Qualifications vary from company to company, but most are based on income and lack of prescription coverage.
The University Health Center offers enrollment assistance at no charge. Call 402.472.5000 for more information.
