About UAMS Outpatient Pharmacy
The UAMS Outpatient Pharmacy is your immediate one-stop source to have your prescription medications filled quickly and easily. We’ve made it simple for you to pick up your medications after leaving your doctor’s office, avoiding another stop on the way home.
Filling Your Prescription
You can drop off new prescriptions in person, or your physician can send new prescriptions electronically, call them in to the pharmacy, or fax them to us at the number listed above.
To request a refill, you can use MyChart or call the pharmacy and use the interactive voice response system to leave a refill request. If there are no refills left, we will automatically contact your provider for a new prescription. If desired, the pharmacy will automatically call or text you when your prescriptions for maintenance medications are due for refills.
On-Campus Delivery for UAMS Employees
The pharmacy delivers prescriptions on the UAMS campus for employees. Employees have the added option of using payroll deduction to pay for their prescriptions. Employees are able to order a refill online, charge it via payroll deduction and have it delivered — all without leaving the office. Just ask about this service during your next visit to the pharmacy.

Specialty Pharmacy Team
Our clinical pharmacists work in the clinic with your doctor and serve as a resource for physicians as well as for patients. They have expert knowledge about specialty medications and are available 24/7 at UAMS to answer questions.
The specialty pharmacy coordinators work to ensure that our patients have their medications when they need them by processing prior authorizations and helping to make specialty medications more affordable with manufacturer or grant assistance. With monthly reminder calls, coordinators set up shipments or have refills ready for pick up in the UAMS Outpatient Pharmacy when requested.
The term “specialty medication” can be defined many ways. Specialty medications usually are very expensive or require close monitoring. Because of their cost, insurers require additional steps to be taken in order to provide the medication. These steps may include:
- Prior authorizations: This means that you doctor must tell the insurance company why he/she is using the medication.
- Step therapy: This means that you have tried other drugs for you condition and they have not worked or no longer work for you.
- On label use: This means that the drug is being used for a condition approved by the FDA.
- High co-pays: This means that your insurance company makes you pay a large part of the cost of the drug. Our service will work on your behalf to reduce this cost.
It is important to us that you are able to access the medications your doctor prescribes for you. We will do everything we can to make this happen.
We have access to many specialty medications, and we will do our best to provide you with the medicine you need. Sometimes the makers of specialty medications limit which pharmacies can carry their drugs. This is called limited distribution. Your insurance may also require you to use a certain specialty pharmacy. If we are unable to fill your specialty medication prescription, we will work with your specialty pharmacy to be sure you receive the care you need. Our specialists and coordinators will work on your behalf with the insurance company and assistance programs even if we do not fill the medication at our pharmacy. All UAMS patients are our patients and we are here for you. Do not hesitate to call if we can be of service.
