You are responsible for the cost of prescription medications. CHWS maintains a small dispensary with some of the most commonly prescribed medications. Generally we are able to offer these medications at a lower cost to Puget Sound students than they would find in area pharmacies (cash price). Please discuss prescription cost options with your CHWS provider.
CHWS does not currently bill insurance companies. CHWS will provide the student with an itemized receipt which may then be submitted by you to your insurance company for reimbursement.
