AU Employee Pharmacy
The TigerMeds program was introduced in November 2008 as a benefit for Auburn University employees and their dependents who have AU medical insurance. Through TigerMeds, employees who transfer all of their prescription medications to the AU Employee Pharmacy (located on campus) can obtain most generic prescription medications free of charge ($0 co-pay). Through this program, there are several ways that employees and dependents can save on out-of-pocket medication expenses:
- Through TigerMeds, tier 1 generic prescription medications are free ($0 co-pay) and tier 2 generic medications are $10 per month. This would save you on average $10 per prescription for generic medications which would be $10 and $20 at other pharmacies.
- If you take a brand name medication that does not currently have a generic alternative available, there is a possibility that there is another drug that is just as effective that is available as a generic. If your physician agrees to change your medicine, this could save you $40 to $80 per month.
- By enrolling in the TigerMeds program, you have the opportunity to make an appointment with a pharmacist to discuss generic alternatives to your brand name medications as well as address any questions regarding your medications. This could also save you money on your prescription copays.
- TigerMeds helps save Auburn University money on medical benefits which helps AU hold down the cost of your health insurance premiums.
TIn addition to the TigerMeds program, the AUPCC offers a variety of wellness services and programs to help manage various chronic health problems (in conjunction with your physician), such as asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. We hope you will take advantage of this benefit that Auburn University has extended to you. We are located inside the School of Pharmacy at 2155 Walker Building.
