The Student Health and Wellness Center Pharmacy is a state-owned, fully-licensed pharmacy. All eligible students may use the SHWC Pharmacy. If you are not currently enrolled in classes and are unsure of your eligibility, please call (940) 565-2790 to speak with a Pharmacy representative to determine if you are still able to use this service.
Every semester we compare our prices with pharmacies within walking distance to campus.
The SHWC Pharmacy is conveniently located in Chestnut Hall on the first floor across from the elevator.
The SHWC Pharmacy fills prescriptions obtained from SHWC medical providers as well as outside medical providers. Your primary physician may call your prescription in to us at (940) 565-2790 or fax us at (940) 565-3150. Prescriptions not picked up within 7 days will be returned to stock.
You can request refills in advance by calling (940) 565-2790. Please have your prescription number ready to give to the technician when calling. Please be aware that if your prescription is out of refills it may take up to 48 hours for additional refills to be obtained through your physician.
Do you currently have a refill at a different pharmacy that you would like to fill here at UNT? No problem! Bring in your latest prescription label or receipt and we'll take care of the rest. If you don't have either a label or receipt just provide us with your name and date of birth, pharmacy name and phone number and prescription number or drug name.
The SHWC Pharmacy accepts the University endorsed student insurance policy with co-pays. As of October 1, 2012 students on the student insurance plan can receive most contraception, including birth control pills, at no co-pay.
The SHWC Pharmacy also accepts some outside prescription insurance cards (e.g. PCS, CVS/Caremark, Express Scripts, Aetna, Optum, and Blue Cross). If unsure whether we accept your prescription insurance, just call the SHWC Pharmacy and provide the BIN (bank identification number) located on the card or stop by and present your card at the front desk. Some examples of BINs we accept:
If we do not accept your insurance plan, we will be happy to give you a price check as we try to keep our prescription prices affordable, even without insurance.
At this time we are unable to accept Tricare insurance or Medicaid plans.
If the SHWC Pharmacy does not stock the medication you need, we may be able to special order it for you. Before the order is placed, we will give you an estimated price and have you sign a form that states the conditions for the special order. Refills for the same medication will not require you to sign a new form. Just call us a few days prior to needing the medication.
SHWC Pharmacy also offers a variety of OTC products, including PlanB, for purchase without a prescription. This service is open to students, faculty, and staff with a UNT identification card.
We welcome any medication questions and are happy to provide you with information about any medication.
Payment is expected at the time of service. We accept cash, check, and credit card payments (American Express, Discover, Mastercard, and Visa).
The SHWC Pharmacy will not disclose Protected Health Information about our patients without prior written consent from the patient on a per request basis. For patients under 18 years of age, parents may request most medical information. Call for details at (940) 565-2790.
