Pharmacists and the prescription prior authorization process
from By Jason Poquette
Pharmacists know the situation all too well. A patient brings in a prescription for a new medication. He has had a discussion with his doctor about the drug and decided he is willing to try something new. But then he is disappointed and confused to be told that the prescription requires something called a "prior authorization." The doctor, patient and pharmacy have all invested some time into this decision and this prescription, only to be denied the ability to fill it.
