Once you receive a prescription from your health care provider, you may fill and purchase the medication from the local pharmacies listed. Your health care provider may also choose to call the prescription in to the pharmacy.

 It is best to fill all prescriptions with the same pharmacy, so they have a record of what drugs you are taking or have taken in the past.  This allows your pharmacist to easily check for drug interactions that could be harmful or decrease the effectiveness of your medications.

Your health plan may require you to use certain pharmacies.  This means they may not pay for your prescription if you do not use one of these pharmacies.  You may call your health plan to find out where you can go.  Look on the back of your insurance card for a phone number to call or you may also ask the pharmacy whether they have a contract with your insurance plan.
What to bring
Bring your driver’s license since some prescriptions need a photo ID, your insurance card or insurance information and a prescription card if you have one.  Most insurance companies require a co-payment so bring cash, credit or debit card.

Transportation

  • Red Cab:  508-791-3847, the cost of a cab to Walmart on Tobias Boland Way is $5.00 one way if you are picked up at the Loyola gate.
  • SGA Van Services:  Free shuttles will run from Hogan 3 to Walmart Pharmacy and to Blackstone Valley (Target Pharmacy).
  • Zip cars

Mail-order pharmacies
Some students choose to use mail-order pharmacies to obtain a three month supply of medication.  Normally, a prescription is mailed or faxed to the mail-order pharmacy or electronically sent by your health care provider.  It may take a week or more for the prescription to reach your home.  Therefore, mail order is best used for long-term mediations.  Mail-order pharmacies can save you money and the medications can be delivered to your school mailbox or home address.
