  • Staff services

    All UK HealthCare pharmacy locations are open to UK students and employees. The University Health Service Pharmacy is open to the public, but primarily serves the UK student population and UK employees for Workers Care-related prescriptions. The pharmacy also has over-the-counter and sundry items available for self-selection.

    Pharmacy benefits program

    The Human Resources office has a pharmacist available to counsel UK Health Plan participants on their medication choices. Through this free service, a pharmacist will review your medications, check for drug-to-drug interactions and make recommendations that may lower your overall cost. Recommendations can be made to switch to a preferred formulary brand from a non-preferred brand, or to switch to a generic choice.

    While there is not always a generic choice available, there may be other drugs in the same therapeutic class that have lower cost alternatives. The pharmacist can forward these recommended changes to your prescriber for consideration. Controlling medication costs encourages proper medication use and may improve your overall health and reduce the possibility of medical complications. 
    To speak with a pharmacist, call 859-323-1493.
