The SHC Pharmacy is a full-service pharmacy open to the NYU community (students, faculty, and staff). We are staffed by three Registered Pharmacists and three Certified Pharmacy Technicians who are ready to help you with all your health care needs.
Prescriptions can be e-prescribed, faxed, or called into the SHC Pharmacy by any licensed Provider or Nurse Practitioner or can be presented in person, in written form. You may also call or secure message the Pharmacy to request a refill for a prescription you have on file with us.
We accept many prescription insurance plans for your convenience.* If you are enrolled in an NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan, refer to the prescription section of the benefits chart in the Guide to Student Health Insurance.
* Please note: There are limits on some prescription benefit plans. Know what your limits are.
Ask the pharmacy staff to explain your benefits to you so you can calculate how much your medications will cost and if you are nearing your yearly cap. Many times we can suggest lower-cost alternatives to help reduce your costs.
Utilize the pharmacy as a healthcare resource. Ask questions if you are unsure about your medications or any other healthcare concern you have.
Contact your insurance provider a few days prior to your departure date so an override can be placed in their system. After you receive an email confirmation, call the pharmacy and let the staff know how many months were approved.
If you are enrolled in an NYU-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan please contact CHP at (877) 373-1170 for override approval.
