If You Cannot Access the Student Health Pharmacy

Gaucho Health Insurance Plan offers an extensive prescription drug program to make it convenient for you to fill your prescriptions. The UCSB Student Health Pharmacy is available to all registered students. We specialize in college health and stock prescription medications as well as over-the-counter products (OTC). Our pharmacy prices are set to recover costs, and are most often considerably less than those in the local community.

The pharmacy is licensed by the California Board of Pharmacy and is operated by registered pharmacists. Prescriptions ordered by either Student Health providers and outside providers can be filled. The services include:

•90-day supply option
•Mail order delivery
•Pharmacist consultation and assistance
•Prescription drug information
•Assistance with over-the-counter products
•Screening for drug interactions, incompatibilities and therapeutic duplications
Charges for pharmacy items are placed on your BA/RC account or you can pay with your UCSB Access Card. To ensure your privacy, charges on your BA/RC account are not itemized; your statement will only show “Student Health Service” and the total amount charged. For students that do not have a BA/RC account, charges may be billed to a credit card (Mastercard or VISA).

Filling/Refilling/Transferring your prescription to UCSB Pharmacy:
Gaucho Health Insurance (GHI) makes it convenient for you to fill, refill, or transfer your prescriptions. UCSB has a pharmacy located on campus at Student Health. We make getting prescriptions easy.

For out of area Prescriptions:
If you are out of the area, Student Health pharmacy can mail your prescription to you. However, if you need to have a refill locally, most major chain drug stores are included in our national pharmacy network. You can use “find a pharmacy” to find one nearby.

Preferred providers are independent contractors and are neither employees nor agents of Aetna Life Insurance Company, Chickering Claims Administrators, Inc. or their affiliates.
