Can I have my prescriptions filled at Brown?
The pharmacy at Brown's Health Services can fill prescriptions. To fill a prescription, Health Services requires a written or telephone prescription from a student’s health care provider. Health Services can also transfer refills from the pharmacy that originally filled the prescription. Or you can see one of our health care professionals in Health Services to obtain a prescription. For more information, call the pharmacy at 401 863-7872.
The Health Services pharmacy also carries many over-the-counter products.

I have health insurance; do I have to pay the Health Fee?
Brown students are required to have health insurance. Students not covered under a parental or other insurance plan are automatically enrolled in the insurance plan offered by the University. This plan is designed specifically to complement the services provided by Health Services and is the result of a competitive bid process. Students may waive enrollment in the Student Health Insurance Plan if they are covered by a comparable health insurance plan (the Insurance website includes criteria to consider when evaluating plans). If you do not want to participate in the University's Student Health Insurance Plan, a waiver form must be submitted by the deadline each academic year. Additional information is available on the Insurance office website.
