Mail Order Pharmacy Service Available at VU Pharmacy

Employees looking for a convenient way to fill their prescription medications should consider the Vanderbilt Mail Order Pharmacy.

“The program is very easy to use,” said Lisa Smith, pharmacist in the mail order pharmacy. “We will even contact your doctor to ask for a 90-day prescription if you don’t already have your script set up that way and it’s appropriate for your needs.”

The Mail Order Pharmacy asks for a 7- to 10-day notice to allow for any complications with your order. There is no shipping cost unless you require next day delivery. Medications cannot be shipped to P.O. boxes and the pharmacy is not licensed to mail outside of Tennessee.

“It’s much more convenient than going to the pharmacy and waiting in line,” said Ginny McLean, marketing coordinator in Benefits Administration and Vanderbilt Mail Order Pharmacy customer.

To use the mail order program, complete an enrollment form and either e-mail or fax it to the Vanderbilt Mail Order Pharmacy:

E-mail mailorderpharmacy@vanderbilt.edu
Phone 875-0078
Fax 875-0077

The enrollment form can be accessed at any of the VU outpatient pharmacies or by downloading online at: http://www.mc.vanderbilt.edu/documents/Outpatient_Rx/files/VUMailServiceOrderForm.pdf.
