  1. I have always wondered …once you get a paper script in your hand and you take it to the Pharmacy, what happens to the script then? How does the Dr know you filled the script? I just wonder how all this is going to work.

  2. Is there a government body that ensures medication sold is what it is? A lack of checks among the private pharmacies could be the cause of the Opioid crisis.

  3. I DON'T UNDERSTAND ANY OF YOUR COMMENTS. AS AN OWNER OF AN INDEPENDENT COMMUNITY PHARMACY
    , WE GET A SCRIPT FROM THE PATIENT. WE CALL THAT SCRIPT IN TO THE INSURANCE COMPANY(WHICH IS REALLY A PHARMACEUTICAL BENEFIT MANAGER) FOR ADJUDICATION. THEY TELL US WHAT TO CHARGE. MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE IS ….. I AM BEING TREATED FOR COPD. AFTER THE PHARMACEUTICAL BENEFIT MANAGER PAYS "THEIR PART" THERE'S A DIFFERENCE OF $150.00 THAT WE PAID FOR THOSE MEDICATIONS. BUT BECAUSE OF THEIR CONFUSING SPREADSHEETS AND FORMULARIES NO ONE KNOWS WHAT THEY WILL CHARGE. ON THOSE TWO SCRIPTS FOR MY COPD WE LOST $150.00. IT'S DIFFICULT TO MAKE A PROFIT WHEN WE FILL SCRIPTS AT A LOSS.
