Fill New Prescriptions

The Pharmacy fills prescriptions from Health Center and Counseling Center providers and from providers external to Tulane, both local and from out-of-town.

The Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans for prescriptions, but every insurance plan is different. Ask your prescription insurance company if Tulane Campus Health Pharmacy is covered under your plan.

Prescription Frequently Asked Questions

How will I know when my prescription is ready. Can you text me?

Yes we can, but this will not happen automatically. Talk to the pharmacy staff to sign up for text alerts that will let you know when your prescription is ready for pick-up.

How long do I have to pick up my prescription after it's ready?

All prescriptions must be picked up within seven days of being filled. After seven days, the prescription will be placed on hold and can be filled again if requested.

How do I transfer a prescription from another pharmacy to the Campus Health pharmacy?

The easiest, fastest, and preferred way to fill your prescriptions with us is to contact your medical provider and ask them to send your prescription directly to the Tulane Campus Health Pharmacy.

How do I transfer a prescription from the Campus Health pharmacy to another pharmacy?

To transfer a prescription from the Campus Health Pharmacy to another pharmacy, provide the other pharmacy with the following information:

  • The Campus Health Pharmacy phone number: 504-862-8658
  • Your name and date of birth
  • The name of the prescription(s) you need to be transferred

The filling pharmacy (the pharmacy to where your Campus Health prescriptions will be transferred) will initiate the transfer.

Exceptions for controlled substances

Prescriptions for stimulant medications that are controlled substances (ex: Adderall, Concerta, Focalin, Ritalin, Vyvanse) cannot be transferred from pharmacy to pharmacy and must be sent directly from your provider to the pharmacy location where you would like to pick up your prescription.

What do I do to continue accessing my medication during semester or summer breaks?

If you are leaving New Orleans for an extended period of time, such as returning home for summer or semester breaks, and you have a short-term supply of medication on hand, ask your provider to send your prescription to your home pharmacy. Please provide your home pharmacy’s name, phone number, and address to your provider.

If you plan to remain local during summer or semester breaks and would like to continue using the Campus Health Pharmacy during this time, ask your provider to send your prescription to the Campus Health Pharmacy.
