All medication supplies by U of U health pharmacy will come from a recognized pharmacy wholesaler or directly from the manufacture.

We maintain the highest standards of quality and patient safety. Our pharmacists check all prescription orders. They also check for drug interactions and allergies from the medications you take. 

Payment & Prescription Costs

You can pay at the dispensing pharmacy with a debit card, cash, or money order. Note, however, that Midvalley Pharmacy only accepts debit or credit cards.

You can use a debit or credit card if you have mail order delivery or another method. Our pharmacy has credit card security to ensure your information is safe.  

Prescription costs

Your insurance company decides the amount you must pay (copay). We will provide the estimated cost based on your insurance or medical benefits.

The amount of medication given can also change the cost. You can ask your provider to prescribe the largest supply approved and covered by insurance.

Some medications can only be filled by certain pharmacies. If we are unable to fill your medication, we will notify you. We will work with you to find a pharmacy to fill your medication.

If you cannot afford your medication. Our staff may be able to find a copay and patient assistance to reduce your out-of-pocket costs.

Other insurance information

Most Medicare Part D prescription plans have a coverage gap (also called the donut hole). This means you will pay a higher cost once you reach the coverage gap.

Some insurance plans may require filling out your medication at a different pharmacy. We will let you know if we cannot fill your prescription as soon as we receive it. We will work with your provider to send the prescription to the new pharmacy.

Insurance company prior authorization

Many specialty drugs need prior authorization before your insurance will pay. Our staff will coordinate the prior authorization paperwork. We will let you know when we have approval or need further action. If we cannot get prior authorization from your insurance, we will notify you and your provider.

Prescription Transfers

If you are currently using another pharmacy to fill your prescriptions and would like to fill your medication at our pharmacy, call us to transfer your prescription.

We will ask you for the information we need to transfer the prescription. If we need a new prescription to fill it, we will contact your provider.
