How do I transfer my prescriptions to the health system pharmacy?
Transferring current prescriptions to the health system pharmacy is easy, with no need to visit the pharmacy in person.
If you choose not to transfer your maintenance prescriptions to one of the health system pharmacy locations (or a contracted pharmacy in Greater Kansas – Reed Pharmacy in Starling and Larned; The Medicine Shoppe in Great Bend), you will pay out of pocket and payments will not go toward your deductible.
Employees at Greater Kansas locations:
To transfer your prescriptions to the health system pharmacy at HaysMed:
- Email HMC_mmc@kumc.edu
- Call 785-650-2789
Include the patient’s name, date of birth, phone number, address, allergy information, name, location and phone number of current pharmacy (e.g., Dillions on Hall St., Hays), and the name of medication(s) to be transferred.

Can I only fill prescriptions at a 34-day supply?
Most medications may be filled up to a 102-day supply if your prescriber writes the prescription for more than 34 days. However, all specialty medications may only be filled up to a 34-day supply.
Will the health system pharmacy fill prescriptions if the prescription is not from a health system provider?
Yes. All health system pharmacy locations will fill prescriptions written by health system and non-health system providers.
How do I know if my prescription is a maintenance drug that I am required to fill at a health system pharmacy to receive coverage?
Maintenance medications are those requiring long-term, regular use to treat a chronic health condition.
Beginning January 1, 2021, health plan members and their dependents must fill maintenance medications via the health system pharmacy to receive coverage. In Greater Kansas, health system rates are also available at the Reed Pharmacy in Larned and Sterling and The Medicine Shoppe in Great Bend.
To determine if one of your medications falls into this category, please contact our pharmacy at 913-588-2371.
