The Trent Central Student Association is pleased to offer a service that will give you enhanced coverage on your prescription medications plus save you money and time by having them delivered right to campus!
The Direct2U Prescription service is available to all Trent students registered on the Student Benefits Plan and will allow you to get your prescriptions at a lower cost, delivered to the TCSA Office the next business day. Deliveries tend to arrive around 1pm-2pm each day.
Having your prescription delivered by Direct2U is easy. Simply have your doctor write your phone number and student number on your prescription and have them fax it to 1-877-835-8329
Trent Health Services will assist you with faxing your prescriptions. Just ask them! When Alliance Pharmacy (the pharmacy behind Direct2U) receives your prescription, they will call your provided phone number and gather any necessary information.
Away from campus during the summer holidays?
Have your prescriptions delivered directly to you using Direct2U Prescriptions. Instead of picking up your medications from the TCSA office, your package can be rerouted to your home, workplace, or any Canada Post or FedEx location in Canada. Never transfer your prescriptions again. Get free, next day delivery while at home, at work, or on vacation within Canada. All you need to do is contact Alliance Pharmacy at 1-877-796-7979 when you need your next refill and let them know where you are located.
Have a prescription already located at another pharmacy?
Sign up for Direct2U online by going to https://www.studentvip.ca/tcsa/vip_benefits/direct_2u_prescriptions/ . Once the form is submitted Alliance will call you for any further questions. If you would like to contact them instead after you have submitted the registration form, call Alliance toll-free (1-877-796-7979) and they will arrange to have your prescription transferred from any pharmacy (some restrictions may apply). The next time you need a refill, just give Alliance a call and they will send you a new batch (or opt into their Refill Reminder Service and they will contact you!)
How will Direct2U save you time?
Your prescriptions will be delivered via FedEx Priority Overnight Service to the TCSA office, located on the second floor of the Student Centre. That means after your prescription has been received by Alliance, your medications will be at the TCSA office the next business day. Instead of riding the bus to the pharmacy and waiting a half-hour for your medications, you will be able to receive your prescriptions on your way to and from class.
When it comes to speaking to a pharmacist? Alliance Pharmacy has pharmacists ready to assist you at any time, just call 1-877-796-7979. If you are on a tight schedule, you can book an appointment for them to call when it is convenient for YOU!
How will Direct2U save you money?
If you are on the TCSA Student Benefits Plan, you will be covered at 100% for eligible generic drugs and 80% for eligible brand name drugs through Direct2U.
If you use a traditional pharmacy, generics are covered at 80% and brand name drugs are only covered at 60% (all at a maximum of $5,000 per year).
|Coverage||Traditional Pharmacy||Direct2U Prescriptions|
|Eligible Generic Drugs||80%||100%|
|Eligible Brand Name Drugs||60%||80%|
Prescriptions cost less because Alliance Pharmacy’s dispensing fees and drug costs are below the average you normally pay, which allows them to pass on the savings to you. There is no cost to activate your membership and no additional cost for FedEx to deliver your prescription on campus!
No Blackout Period!
When you need a prescription during the blackout period, other pharmacies will require you to pay up front and fill out a claim form and wait for reimbursement. With Direct2U, there is no blackout period. So you never have to pay out of pocket!
If you need more information on the Direct2U Prescription service, please see the TCSA Office for assistance.
