Have your prescriptions delivered directly to the UNB GSA office, or to a location of your choice for free, the next business day with Direct2U Prescriptions.

This service is available for all UNB GSA students regardless of what health plan you are on.

You do not have to be on the UNBGSA plan to use this service!

Those on the UNB GSA plan will receive 100% coverage on generic drugs (versus 80% at a traditional pharmacy).

Provided by Alliance Pharmacy, Direct2U Prescriptions offers lower dispensing fees and ingredient costs on your medications plus free delivery to any location across Canada. The GSA has set up a special designated drop off location at the UNBGSA office for your convenience as you pass through campus. Pick up your medications at any time during office hours. Doing research for a few months or on winter break? Have your prescriptions rerouted to where YOU are. This service can be used even after graduation.

How to Sign Up:

New Prescriptions: At the doctors office, write your phone number on the prescription and ask the receptionist to fax your prescription to 1-877-835-8329. Alliance Pharmacy will contact you for your information. The pharmacist will provide a consultation on your medications, the same way you would at a traditional pharmacy, except over the phone.

Existing Prescriptions: Transfer your prescriptions easily by calling Alliance Pharmacy at 1-877-796-7979. You can also register online and submit your pharmacy information at https://www.studentvip.ca/unbgsa/vip_benefits/direct_2u_prescriptions/

Refills: You can sign up for refill reminders by phone, text, or email. Delivery notifications are also sent by email so you know when the package has been sent and delivered.

Privacy and Confidentiality: Your prescription comes packaged in a plain box with no markings. You can speak to a pharmacist over the phone, in the comfort of your own home, instead of in a busy store. All packages are stored in a locked cabinet behind a locked door for your safety. The staff at the UNB GSA office will require photo identification and a signature in order to release your prescriptions.

Please note, monitored medications are not eligible for Direct2U delivery, you can view your drugs eligibility here.
