Bruin Health Pharmacy

A full range of prescription medications in addition to over 70 over-the-counter medications available to students and faculty and staff with qualifying insurance plans

Bruin Health Pharmacy is located on the A-Level of Ackerman Union, A-250, and is available to all registered students in addition to UCLA faculty & staff with qualifying HealthNet Blue & Gold and UC Care insurance plans. We offer a full range of prescription medications in addition to over 70 over-the-counter medications.

Unlike other healthcare facilities, The Ashe Center serves only the UC community. All of our services are geared towards your needs as a UCLA student. As such, Bruin Health Pharmacy and our clinical staff are a unique team that is here to support you in all of your healthcare needs.

Our pharmacy staff offers counseling and advice to students and works directly with clinicians to ensure you are getting the medication and care you need. We have a thorough understanding of health insurance policies and can help you obtain coverage and approval for your medications.

Bruin Health Pharmacy sells over-the-counter (OTC) medications that are commonly used and commonly recommended by our clinicians such as cold and cough medications, pain relievers, eye, ear and nose drops, personal hygiene items, condoms, emergency contraception (Plan B), topical antibiotic creams, anti-itch creams and vitamins. Our OTC pricing is very low, almost at cost. The cost of all over-the-counter medications you purchase will be billed to your BruinBill account.
