The goal of the Stamps Health Services Pharmacy is to provide efficient, professional, confidential, and economical prescription services to the students at Georgia Tech.
Stamps Health Services operates a low cost, on-site pharmacy which provides the students at Georgia Tech with medications from both SHS and outside providers. We carry a variety of both prescription and non-prescription (over-the-counter) medications.
The prescription and over-the-counter medications offered at the pharmacy are priced at or below the typical insurance plan co-pay. We are also able to order items we typically do not carry in the pharmacy for pick up on the next business day.
For the convenience of our students, we offer text messaging. The pharmacy staff can add your cell phone number to our records, so you can be alerted via text when your prescriptions are ready.
The pharmacy also offers an automated refill system that can be accessed via telephone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To use the automated refill system please call the pharmacy at 404-894-1430 extension 1 if you have the prescription number or extension 2 to leave a voicemail message. The pharmacy staff will complete the refill request, and notify you via text message once the refill is ready.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What information needs to be with my prescription?
Be sure you always have your GTID with you. We will update allergies and other medications you take at every visit.
2. Does the pharmacy accept all insurance cards?
The Pharmacy does not bill insurance. We offer low cost medications to help defer medical costs to our students. However, the insurance department does process claims for the Blue Cross Blue Shield plan purchased through Georgia Tech.
3. Can I bring in a prescription or a refill from an outside doctor or pharmacy?
Yes, the pharmacy can fill prescriptions written by doctors outside of Stamps Health Services. Also, we will be glad to call an outside pharmacy to transfer any remaining refills you might have on a prescription at that location. Please provide the pharmacy phone number and the prescription name or number if possible.
4. How can I get my prescription refilled?
We offer 24/7 prescription refill capabilities via the automated refill line. Please call the pharmacy at 404-894-1430. Use prompt 1 if you know your prescription number, or prompt 2 to leave a voicemail.
5. I don't have time to wait. When is the best time for me to come in?
While we try to get our students taken care of as quickly as possible, the busiest times of the day are between the hours of 10 am -12 pm and 2 pm - 4 pm.
6. I'm going away for the summer (holidays, semester, etc). How can I be sure to have enough medication?
Typically, you can get enough medication to get you through the time you will be gone. If the cost is too high at one time, we can always transfer your prescription to your home town pharmacy for the summer and transfer back any remaining refills in the Fall.
7. Can my roommate (friend, family member, etc.) pick up my prescription for me?
If someone is going to pick up your order for you, you must fill out a Prescription Release Authorization at the Pharmacy to be kept on file.
8. How do I purchase over-the-counter items, like aspirin or band-aids?
We have recently expanded our over-the-counter (OTC) section to include a larger variety of items. These items can be purchased by bringing them to the Cashier/Check-Out counter near the pharmacy. If there is a specific item you would like, please ask us to order it for you.
