Campus Health offices will be closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 28, 2018. Regular business hours will resume on May 29.

Pharmacy

The Campus Health Pharmacy, located on the third floor of the Health Center Uptown, is staffed by board-certified pharmacists and technicians. We offer prescription services, over-the-counter products, and medication education and counseling. 

Your Medication Experts

Our pharmacists are your medication experts, committed to your well-being.  As a member of your healthcare team, our pharmacists are available to provide a range of care for you:

  • Dispense medications
  • Ability to assist with monitoring your health and progress to optimize your response to medication therapies
  • Educate you on the use of prescriptions and over-the-counter medications
  • Educate and advise physicians, nurses, and other health professionals on medication therapy decisions

Prescription Fulfillment

The pharmacy can fill prescriptions from the Health Center or CAPS providers as well as from providers not associated with Tulane; this includes both local and out-of-town practitioners. Students also have the option to choose off-campus pharmacy to fill any prescriptions written by Campus Health providers.

The Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans for prescriptions, but every insurance plan is different. Please learn your pharmacy benefits from your pharmacy insurance provider or check with the pharmacy to see if your insurance is accepted.

What to Bring to the Pharmacy

When getting your prescription filled or picking up your prescription, always remember to bring the following:

  • Tulane Splash ID
  • State-issued ID or Passport
  • Insurance card
  • Prescription benefit card*
  • Prescription or refill information
  • Payment method (Visa, MasterCard, Tulane debit card, and charges to accounts receivable; we do not accept American Express)

*If you have a separate prescription benefit card, it's very important that you bring it with you so your medication costs can be properly filed with your insurance. 

Over-the-Counter Medicines

The pharmacy carries a number of commonly needed over-the-counter medications and personal care products at low prices. Products available include the following:

  • Cold/Flu medicine
  • Allergy medicine
  • Digestive health
  • Hygiene products
  • Multi -Vitamins
  • Eye and ear drops
  • Hygiene products
  • First aid
  • Sunscreen
