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 Willets 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.
