Winter Break Reminders
Be sure to refill or transfer your prescription BEFORE you leave town for Winter Break. The pharmacy can only conduct transfers during the stated operating hours. Please instruct your home pharmacy to call during these times or you may not be able to transfer your record until CSUHN resumes regular business hours. See information below under “Transfer Your Prescription” for more information.

If you run out of your medication and cannot obtain a transfer, we recommend taking your prescription bottle to your local urgent care facility to request a refill.

Insurance, Payment and Co-Pay Billing in the Pharmacy

CSU Health Network Pharmacy works with most health insurance prescription cards and bills private insurance. We are contracted with Colorado Medicaid, but not Medicare Part D or out-of-state Medicaid.

CSU Health Network Pharmacy requires all patients to provide prescription insurance information, including current billing information, at the time of service.

Note that prescription coverage may be on a separate card from medical insurance, depending on your plan. Four (4) pieces of insurance information are required at the time of service – Identification Number, RxBIN, RxPCN, and RxGRP (Rx Group). See sample card below for more information. This information may appear in a different place on your card, depending on your insurance provider.

  • PRO TIP: Students are encouraged to have photos of their medical and prescription insurance cards on their phones for easy access.
