Prescriptions and refills

Prescriptions are accepted from any licensed provider or Dentist if the Medication is on the Health Service formulary. The Pharmacy stocks medications used most frequently by the student population. Upon request, we will gladly quote prices and availability.

Refills may be ordered by phone if the original prescription was submitted to the pharmacy and there are valid refills remaining. The Pharmacy phone number is 581-7779. Prescriptions may also be filled at any retail pharmacy.


Prescription co-pays are priced as follows: $15, $25, $50. We are unable to accept individual Insurance or Medicaid cards.

Receipts are always provided and may be used for insurance or tax purposes.
EIU Physicians - Up to a 14 day supply costs generally range from $15.00 to $50.00. Maintenance prices which are the cost of the drug plus a small fee, apply after 2 prescriptions for the same illness or condition. Exceptions would be pre-packaged units that last up to a month (i.e. inhalers and some topical solutions). These are limited to one prescription which generally range from $15.00 to $50.00.

Items can be special ordered and we will gladly quote prices and availability.


We accept cash or orders may be charged to student's university account (which can be paid at the cashier's office with a check, Panther Card, debit card or charge card). Sorry, the pharmacy cannot accept Panther Cards, debit cards or credit cards, nor do we bill individual insurance or Medicaid. However, there are several area pharmacies that do accept these forms of payment.

If you have any questions, contact the pharmacy at 217-581-7779.
