I may be wrong but I believe they are referring to non-prescription pills which may have been given at the hospital.
Pills such as aspirin, anti-inflammatories, decongestants, supplements, etc, which could be purchased over-the-counter without a prescription are often not covered by insurance.
My wife worked as a nurse in hospitals for many years. ...I often heard of $10 aspirin being charged to a patient.
