The LSU Student Health Center’s pharmacy is shifting to private ownership this January after failing as a self-sustaining entity. Pharmacy ownership is not yet open for bids from private corporations, but the SHC expects to have a company contracted and moved into the location by 2016. … Though the pharmacy currently accepts only the insurance offered through the university, the future company’s contract will require it to accept all forms of insurance, as well as Tiger Cash, which has been accepted as pharmacy payment for many years. Morris said the pharmacy’s limited insurance options factored into its loss of revenue.
