The NUHS Pharmacy is here to serve your prescription drug and over-the-counter medication needs. We accept most major prescription benefit plans. Patients who use NUHS may have their prescriptions filled at the pharmacy of their own choice. A valid Northwestern WildCARD (NU identification card) is necessary to use the Pharmacy. Prescriptions from licensed physicians are filled by our registered pharmacist at a reasonable cost and are frequently below the cost charged at local retail pharmacies when not using insurance.

New prescriptions or refill authorizations from providers are not accepted by email but are accepted by mail, phone or fax to 847 467-6869. Please note that faxed prescriptions must be signed by a physician. Refills of valid prescriptions originally filled at the NUHS Pharmacy may be requested by calling 847 491-2144. Additionally, any prescription(s) from your healthcare provider external to the Health Service can be routed directly as an eScript to the Northwestern University Health Service Pharmacy.

Purchases may be paid for by cash, check, Visa/MasterCard, WildCARD, American Express, other ATM (debit) cards or billing the charge to your student account. A limited selection of common nonprescription, Over-The-Counter (OTC) items, such as allergy and cold remedies, cough syrups, analgesics, contraceptives, humidifiers, thermometers, and heating pads are also available.
