    Default Anyone have a Western University Drug Plan?

    This is the first time we have had to use our Drug Plan. DH (a masters student) says that we need to get the perscription filled at the University Pharmacy. Is this true? Does anyone know how long it usually takes them to fill a perscription? Thanks!

    That site doesn't seem to love firefox so I'm just going to say call around and ask, because some places will waive the dispensing fee above what is covered by your plan.

    Nope, we are on the same plan and have never used the pharmacy at the University. If the pharmacy you choose doesn't deal directly with the insurance company simply submit the receipt. You can get the forms to submit the receipts online through the SOGS website or go to the SOGS office and they can help you with that. We generally do pay for the drugs on our own and submit the receipts.

    Thanks! I thought it was odd when DH told me we could only go to the University. Thanks for clearing it up.

    I was notorious for forgetting my card at home so I always filed the claims in the SOGS office. We use Walmart's pharmacy most of the time for the low dispensing fees.
