If you choose to fill your prescription at a non‐participating pharmacy, your costs will increase. You will likely need to pay for the entire amount of the prescription and then submit a prescription drug claim form for reimbursement. The pharmacist must sign and complete the appropriate section of the claim form to ensure proper processing of the claim for reimbursement.
Members who submit claims from non‐participating pharmacies are reimbursed based on a limited fee schedule. The fee schedule may be considerably less than the cost of the medication. You are responsible for paying any difference.
A mail order pharmacy program is not available to UCLA students.
