The Medical Center’s Employee Pharmacy is dedicated exclusively to University employees, retirees and their families. The pharmacy features potential savings for employees and their families who are enrolled in University Health Care Plans.
Specialized Service for University Staff, Retirees, Families
Tailored to exclusively serve UR employees and retirees, the Employee Pharmacy’s staff has a deep understanding of specific University Health care plans, associated formularies, and our specialty drug program. What’s more, our Employee Pharmacy offers employees, non-Medicare eligible retirees, and eligible dependents covered under a University sponsored health care plan up to a 25 percent discount on copayments for prescriptions filled there. (Medicare-eligible retirees enrolled in the University Complementary Care Plan with Major Medical, or the Preferred Care Gold HMO-POS with University Major Medical, receive a discount off the usual out-of-pocket cost prior to reaching the deductible, and then a 25 percent reduction in coinsurance once the deductible has been met.)
Don’t work at the Medical Center? No worries – the friendly staff also offers free delivery services to any University owned property, and is equipped with an online payment system to make the transaction quick and easy.
Making a pick-up is simple, too. The pharmacy is located on the first floor of the Medical Center, just off the South Corridor near the URMC Employee Health office. If you’re swinging by from offsite, the pharmacy boasts four convenient parking spots in the nearby Whipple Circle (off Crittenden Boulevard; if you’re using a GPS unit, input 256 Crittenden Blvd, 14620; or click here for Google Maps) reserved for employees and retirees retrieving medicines.

Savings on Prescription Medications
The Employee Pharmacy offers offsite prescription delivery service.
The pharmacy is staffed to deliver medicines to most University off-site locations with courier service. Please contact the pharmacy if you are unsure
if there is delivery to your location.
To use the delivery service, employees are asked to order medications by 1 p.m. for next-business-day delivery. Please complete the delivery request form and fax to the pharmacy (585-276-2600) with your location, building number, and any other information that will help us find you when making the delivery. Prior to delivery, the pharmacy staff will
send you a secure payment link to your university email
to process payment with your credit card or flexible spending debit card. Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable to accept cash or check when using the delivery service.
Transferring your prescriptions
To begin transferring your existing prescriptions to the employee pharmacy, complete the transfer form and patient information form (you may bring forms to the secure drop box located outside the new pharmacy, or fax them directly to 276-2600). To refill a prescription or speak with a pharmacy staff member, call 276-3900.
