Prescription Benefit

If you have the UNC System-Wide Student Health Insurance Plan, your copay for prescription drugs filled at Campus Health Pharmacy or Student Stores Pharmacy for a 30 day supply will not exceed $15 for students or $10 for RA/TAs or PostDocs, regardless of the tier on the BCBS Formulary.  Most contraceptive prescriptions are available at a $0 copay.  The copay tier structure identified in the Student Blue, RA/TA and PostDoc benefit brochures apply only to any other pharmacy.  Some low-cost medications may be available from pharmacies at cash prices that are lower than your copay.  Please click here for the $4/$10 cash price list for Campus Health Pharmacy and Student Stores Pharmacy.
