I am a student, does my health fee cover the cost of medications prescribed by Health Services practitioners?

The student health fee covers the cost of some prescription medications, however, others are chargeable. All prescription medications covered by the health fee have a $5.00 co-pay. Our Pharmacy and clinical staff will inform you if your medication is not covered by the health fee. All non-prescription medications are chargeable.

How can I pay for my medications?

You may pay by cash, check, credit card or Cat's Cache. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept outside health insurance plans at this time, with the exception of the UNH Student Health Benefits PlanCo-payments for medications are due at the time of pick up. We accept cash, check, Cat’s Cache, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.

Do you sell birth control pills and other contraceptive methods?

Yes. If you have a new prescription from an outside provider we can fill it in our pharmacy, if it is a prescription we carry.

If you originally filled your prescription at another pharmacy, we can transfer any remaining refills, if it is a prescription we carry.

If you need a new or refill birth control prescription written, we will need to receive records of your most recent physical exam. If you don't have this information, Health Services provides PAP Smears and gynecological exams. Appointments are available by calling (603) 862-2856 or online.
