Maintenance Prescriptions Now Available Through Duquesne’s Pharmacy

Posted on June 27, 2012

Do you take maintenance drugs for a chronic condition? University faculty and staff now can order maintenance prescriptions at Duquesne’s pharmacy, the Center for Pharmacy Services.

Beginning July 1, faculty and staff participating in the CVS Caremark prescription plan will be required to fill maintenance prescriptions in one of the following three ways:

  • Through the Center for Pharmacy Services
  • Through CVS Caremark mail order services
  • Or at a CVS retail store.

By ordering through Duquesne’s pharmacy, plan members not only receive a three-month supply of medication for a two-month co-pay, they also enjoy the benefit of free campus delivery, and most prescriptions can be filled the same day.

“We’re really happy to be offering this service to employees,” said Terri Kroh, director of the Center for Pharmacy Services. “By ordering through us, they’ll be saving money, cutting down on errands and saving time, too.”

The pharmacy also offers plan members a $4 and $10 generic program, as well free choice diabetic medications.

Staffed by licensed pharmacists, the Center for Pharmacy Services is operated by the Mylan School of Pharmacy and serves both the public and the University community. The pharmacy is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.

For details on how to transfer an existing prescription or initiate a new one, call the pharmacy at 412.246.0963.
