Call early for your appointment.
The goal of the Student Health Center is to give you a same day appointment.
If the volume of patients prevents this, you will be offered
the first available opening that is appropriate for your visit.
The Student Health Center operates a Class D (clinic) pharmacy, offering low cost medication and supplies to LU and LIT students. Most of the medications ordered by our practitioners are available within the clinic pharmacy. We carry antibiotics, eye creams and drops, anti-fungal medications, non-narcotic pain relievers and a few oral contraceptives. Most medications range in price from $5.00 to $20.00, and although most illnesses are treated with these inexpensive medications, it is occasionally necessary to prescribe a more costly alternative. The Health Center charges are at or near cost, and the charge is billed to the student's account. Our patients also have the option of obtaining a written prescription that can be filled at any Texas pharmacy.
The Health Center carries numerous OTC (over the counter) items ready for purchase by Lamar and LIT students. For example, our stock includes basic cold and allergy medicines, contact lens care and personal and feminine hygeine items. These charges are billed to the student's account.
While our pharmacy does not fill outside prescriptions, one of our practitioners will gladly order something comparable after a brief consultation office visit. Three days advance notice is needed to fill birth control requests. Please have your student ID ready when you call. We will also verify your contact number in the event the nurse needs to speak to you about your prescription.
No payment is required at the time of service, as all charges are billed to your student account and payable at any time during the semester at the cashier's office or online. The Health Center pharmacy is NOT able to file on any insurance for medications. Therefore the cost of prescriptions and/or over the counter items will be charged to your student account. If you have a medication plan with your health insurance, a written prescription can be obtained for filing at an outside pharmacy.
