Prescription Policy

A prescription, often abbreviated ℞ or Rx, is a health care program implemented by a qualified health care practitioner in the form of instructions that govern the plan of care and authorizes medicine or treatment to be provided to an individual patient. Our providers can prescribe a wide range of drugs, which can be useful for treating infections, allergies and other minor health concerns. Our providers generally do not prescribe more than a 90-day refill within a 6-month period. The patient or guardian of the patient is responsible for taking the medication in the dose prescribed and for keeping track of the amount remaining.

Only certain types of medications can be refilled under specific circumstances. You may be asked to make an appointment with your physician before a refill can be authorized. Thanks for your understanding. It is the patient's responsibility to keep track of the amount of medication remaining and to schedule appointments appropriately. For prescription refill requests, please allow at least two weekdays (48 hours) for regular prescriptions and up to 72 hours for controlled substances. We typically fill them quickly, but if we happen to be short handed, we would rather ensure we have enough time to meet your needs.

All medications must be obtained at a designated pharmacy. The prescribing provider has complete liberty to fully discuss all diagnostic and treatment details with the dispensing pharmacy for the purposes of maintaining accountability. We reserve the right to communicate with previous and present Providers that have cared for you and/or your previous or present insurance carriers. We ask that you take the medications as prescribed. All medications are to be kept in a safe place, especially away from children. They may be hazardous or lethal should they be inadvertently taken by any person other than for whom they were prescribed.

All patients are required to read and sign this Prescription Policy & Agreement. Failure to adhere to the rules and regulations of this agreement could result in the dismissal of your care from Fleur De Lis Family Healthcare.
