Falk Pharmacy expands campus delivery

Beginning Oct. 2, Falk Pharmacy will offer a free prescription-delivery service to Pitt employees enrolled in the UPMC Health Plan who work in the following campus buildings: Benedum Hall, Craig Hall, Hillman Library, Medical Arts Building, Posvar Hall and Sennott Square.

In Craig Hall, prescriptions will be delivered to the first-floor reception area, where faculty and staff can pick them up after 1 p.m. on Wednesdays and Fridays.

In the other five buildings, prescriptions will be delivered to employees at their offices before 4:30 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays. If customers don’t expect to be in their offices at scheduled delivery times, they must notify Falk Pharmacy staff in advance that they want their medications left with other people in their departments.

Prescription orders must be placed by 5:30 p.m. for delivery the next business day. To protect employees’ privacy, delivered packages will not identify the specific contents.

Falk Pharmacy, located in the Falk Medical Building, will not accept cash payments for deliveries but will accept all major credit cards, and the “Benny Cards” issued to participants in Pitt’s flexible spending accounts plan.

Falk Pharmacy also will deliver over-the-counter medications to employees in the same orders with their prescription drugs, but will not deliver over-the-counter medications alone.

The pharmacy will extend its free prescription-delivery service to more Pitt buildings in coming months, according to John Kozar, director of benefits in the Office of Human Resources.

Instructions on beginning the office-delivery process will be posted next week on the Pitt benefits web site at The site also will include information on prescription discounts available through Falk Pharmacy.
