At Truman Medical Centers/University Health, we work hard to help you get the medications you need at a cost you can afford.
Whether you're filling a new prescription or picking up a refill, here are some of the ways we can help:
- If you can't afford your medicines, we may be able to connect you with programs that help pay for the cost of your medicines. It's one of many ways that we live our mission to provide exceptional care without exception.
- We are part of the same healthcare system as your Truman Medical Centers/University Health provider. This allows us to quickly resolve any issues with your medicines.
- Our pharmacy services are close by our clinics and our hospitals. So it's easy to pick up your medicines on your way home from seeing one of our doctors.
- We will double-check your prescription for drug interactions that could be harmful to you. If another medicine would work better for you, we will recommend it.
Like your doctors, our highly trained pharmacists are experts in your medications. We can help you understand them. If you have any questions about a medicine, feel free to ask us.
