Now Filling Prescriptions for Dependents of KU Employees

For added convenience, Watkins Pharmacy invites KU faculty, staff and affiliates to fill prescriptions for their family members right here on campus.

Setting Up Dependents

As the employee, please call our Registration & Records Office at 785-864-9494 to verify eligibility and have your dependent(s) added to our records system. The employee will also need to complete the KU Employee/Dependent Authorization Form. You may request a printable version of this form by emailing our Registration & Records Office at

Filling Prescriptions

Our Pharmacy can fill any valid prescription issued by a healthcare provider licensed to practice in the United States. Simply bring the prescription to Watkins Pharmacy or your provider may call in the prescription to 785-864-9531, fax it to 785-812-0210 or send it electronically. Our staff can also assist with transferring prescriptions from a different pharmacy. Be sure to bring your insurance card with you. Most insurance plans are accepted. We are not a contracted provider for Medicare or Medicaid.
