That's what she said: "I'll be back."
But why will she back?
Because she agreed with me that the prescription for Adderall she tried to fill looked like it had been photocopied. It was clearly photocopied and then signed by the someone. Maybe it was the prescriber, I don't know.
We don't fill photocopied prescriptions.
Of course, that wasn't the only problem. The first thing she did upon handing me the prescription was tell me that this is a cash pay.
"Oh?" I said, perked up. This is the first red flag that immediately gets our attention.
I noticed the photocopied state of the prescription right away but I wanted to see what would happen if the prescription was submitted to her insurance. It did go through the insurance which made me even more curious why she would want to pay cash. The co-pay was $10. Cash price is $55, which she didn't even slightly blink at... another red flag.
At this point I'm really amusing myself. I have no intention of filling a photocopied prescription for cash when the patient has active coverage that will pay for the medication. It was just all too interesting.
Instead of fighting with me about not filling it, she agreed that it looked photocopied but that she had "another" prescription at home to bring in.
"I'll be back," she said.
That was two days ago.
I'm still waiting.
