Health Care for UMD Employees
UMD Health Services has a dispensary on-site. The dispensary differs from a pharmacy in that we only keep a limited number of commonly prescribed (general antibiotics and oral contraceptives) and over-the-counter medications on hand. Medication from our dispensary is paid for by the patient with cash, check or credit card; Insurance companies will not be billed for these medications. Cost for the medication will be provided at the time of services, but note that most antibiotics are under $15. Oral contraceptives may be provided to students free of charge if they qualify for the 4me@UMD Program.
Students can call the dispensary line for birth control refill requests, 218-726-7865. You will be prompted to leave a message. During the summer, birth control refills will be available for refill and pick up on Mondays and Thursdays only, 9am-3pm.
When neccessary, the medical provider will provide a student with a prescription to recieve medications from a local pharmacy. We have a list of local pharmacies available on our website. Please note that although we are intentional about keeping this list updated, you may discover an outdated reference.
ADHD Stimulant Medication Protocol for UMD Health Services
UMD Health Services and its medical providers are available to write prescriptions for patients using stimulant medications( Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta, Vyvanse, Focalin, etc.) for the treatment of ADHD. However, the following conditions must be met before a prescription will be written:
Consideration of this protocol will help students avoid a lapse in their treatment if they are currently being treated by their local primary care provider. If students have never been evaluated for ADHD but suspect they may have symptoms consistent with the condition, an appointment is encouraged with a UMD Health Services Mental Health Therapist to discuss symptoms, to create a diagnostic and assessment plan, and to refer for psychological testing if appropriate.
