A refill means your prescription can be filled again when you have finished the current supply. A renewal is necessary when you have no refills left on a prescription.  

How do I know if I have refills?
Your prescription label will indicate how many refills remain.  Look at the top center of the label.

How do I get a refill? 

  • Call Rutgers Health Center Pharmacy at 848-932-8033.  Give us your name and the prescription number.
  • Stop in at Rutgers Health Center Pharmacy (in Hurtado Health Center) or one of the Telepharmacies at either Busch Livingston or Cook Douglass Health Centers and request your refill. 


How do I renew a prescription?
If there are no refills remaining, the prescription needs to be renewed by one of these two ways:

  • Obtain a new written prescription from your health care provider.
  • Supply Rutgers Health Center Pharmacy with your health care provider’s name, phone number, medication name and prescription number.  Pharmacy staff will contact your health care provider directly for a renewal.
