Pharmacy - About

Pharmacy PillsOur pharmacy staff is here to serve all UNM students, faculty, staff, and retirees. We offer a UNM SHAC Pharmacy discount to help save money on all generic medications. We also accept many insurance plans, and don’t worry, the co-pays are usually the same as if you went to your local pharmacy. We also provide text messaging and a mobile app to make using your pharmacy a lot easier. The pharmacy also stocks a variety of over-the-counter products, including dietary supplements. (For information, see Pharmacy Services.)

There is something for everyone. Stop in and check us out!
