As a student, how will this impact me?

Student Health Insurance Plan members will continue to be able to fill prescriptions at any participating retail pharmacy, and for up to 90-days through July 31, 2021. Those members who fill prescriptions for a 90-day supply at the HUHS Pharmacy will need to transition these 90-day fills to a new participating pharmacy. 

If you waived the Student Health Insurance Plan, please contact your private insurance plan or Pharmacy Benefit Manager to request a list of participating pharmacies to which you can have your prescription(s) transferred.

How to transfer your non-specialty/non-controlled prescription refills to another retail pharmacy

  1. Locate a new retail pharmacy that is convenient to you and is considered “in-network” with your Pharmacy Benefit Manager or health insurance plan (Student Health Insurance Plan members). Contact the customer service phone number on your prescription card for help locating a new pharmacy. 
  2. Once you select a new pharmacy, inform them that you are transferring your prescriptions from the HUHS Pharmacy; the new pharmacy should contact the HUHS Pharmacy to request a transfer of your active prescriptions.
  3. Transfer requests by the new pharmacy should be made by calling (617) 496-6662 during the hours of 8:30am-5:00pm Monday through Friday before 12/18/20. 

Transfer specialty medication refills

Student Health Insurance Plan members will need to fill specialty medications through Accredo. To get started, contact Accredo at (800) 803-2523. Accredo will work with you to create an account and get your prescription transferred for you.

Student Health Insurance Plan members will have a mail-order delivery option as of January 1, 2021

Additional information will be communicated to students when it becomes available. Prior to this date, Student Health Insurance Plan members will need to transfer any open refills to another retail pharmacy.

Students who waived the Student Health Insurance Plan

If you waived the Student Health Insurance Plan, please contact your private insurance plan to request a list of participating pharmacies to which you can have your prescription(s) transferred. You will need to contact the new pharmacy and ask them to transfer your prescription.
