What is compounding?

Compounding is the art and science of preparing custom medications. At times, an individual may not be able to use manufactured medications. Maybe a dosage form is not commercially available, or the individual may be allergic/sensitive to dyes, preservatives or additives. Compounders can custom make medications in the best dosage form for the individual.

How long does it take to make a prescription?

As a general policy, we ask customers for 24-48 hours to complete a custom medication. Since the medication is custom made for the individual, each compounded medication has varying preparation times depending on a variety of factors such as:

  • Dosage form of the medication
  • Availability of ingredients
  • Communication needed between the doctor, pharmacist and patient

The time it takes for each medication can be discussed with one of our compounding team members. Some medications can be ready the same day and others may take a day or longer to complete.

Do you ship compounded medications?

Please contact us at (402) 558-2474 for more information on shipping and pricing.

What are the compounding store hours?

Our compounding lab is open Monday – Friday from 9am to 5:30pm.

How are compounding customers notified their prescription is ready?

Compounding has an automated call that tells the patient their prescription is ready.

Can a customer pick up a compound on the weekend?

Unfortunately, our compounding pharmacy is closed during the weekend, and we’ll resume medication fulfillment during regular business hours on Monday.

Do you take insurance for compounded products?

Some insurance plans cover compounded medications. You may want to check with your insurance company for your specific coverage. Kubat Compounding does not bill insurances directly at this time. We can supply the customer with a Universal Insurance Claim Form that you may send to your insurance carrier. If they cover compounds, they will reimburse you directly minus your copay.

Why can't I fill a compounded medication at my regular pharmacy?

A compounding pharmacy makes medications specifically for each individual customer. Other pharmacies that do not specialize in compounding do not have the equipment or chemicals to make custom medications.

How does a customer get a universal claim form?

Our compounding pharmacy will provide this to customers.
