Benefits of using the MIT Pharmacy
Using the MIT Pharmacy offers many advantages:
Spend less. Your copayment—your out-of-pocket cost for each prescription—will always be lower at the MIT Pharmacy than at Express Scripts pharmacies. See table below for prices.

Note: MIT High Deductible Health Plan members pay full price for non-preventive prescription medications until their deductible is met.
Get no-hassle refills. Call 617-253-0202, day or night, and your prescription will be ready for pickup on the next business day. You can also view your medication list and submit refill requests online with HealthELife.
Avoid drug interactions. Our pharmacy software scans all your current medications and flags potential problems for each new prescription to minimize the possibility of side effects or drug interactions.
Keep your prescription history with your medical history. When you use the MIT Pharmacy, your MIT Medical providers will have a complete picture of your prescription history in your medical record, which helps them make sure you’re getting exactly what you need.
