Frequently Asked Questions

Q May I return my unused medications to the Pharmacy?
A Pharmacies cannot accept returned medications. Please see the next question for what you can do with your unused medication.
Q What can I do with my unused medications?
A Unfortunately, Washington is lacking a statewide program that addresses this issue. In the meantime, the following links will provide you with current information about what you can do.
Q How can I dispose of used needles, syringes or other sharps?
A The Pharmacy has containers for you to use at home to collect your used needles, syringes and other sharps. There are also recycling and disposal stations and public health sites that accept these materials www.seattle.gov.
Q May I transfer my prescription to another pharmacy?
A Yes, in most cases a pharmacist may transfer the remaining refills to another pharmacy. However, once your prescription has been transferred from the original pharmacy your prescription is now void and may no longer be filled there, unless you have it transferred back to the original pharmacy. Controlled medications may only be transferred once.
Q May I have a copy of my prescription?
A A pharmacist may give you a copy of your prescription only for informational purposes. A pharmacist may NOT dispense a drug from a copy of a prescription. A pharmacist may use the information on your copied prescription to contact your doctor for a new prescription.
Q May I fax in my prescription?
A No, a prescription may only be faxed to the Pharmacy by the healthcare provider.
Q Why can’t I fill all of the refills I’ve been prescribed at once?
A The Pharmacy is only allowed to dispense the quantity that your doctor indicated on your prescription at a time. Also, insurance companies have their own limitations on refill quantity and frequency. For example, many insurance companies limit refills to a one-month supply. Prescriptions may only be refilled after the appropriate amount of time has lapsed in between refills.
Q Who can write a prescription?
A Only a physician (MD), dentist (DDS), podiatrists (DPM), Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNPs) and Osteopathic Physicians (DO) may issue a prescription. These physicians can issue prescriptions without any type of restrictions.
Physician’s Assistants (PA) and Certified Physician's Assistants (PA-C) may issue prescriptions only as approved by the Medical Commission. Pharmacists (RPh, PharmD) may write prescriptions only under an approved protocol agreed upon by the physician. This agreement must be filed with the Board of Pharmacy. Veterinarians (DV) can issue prescriptions to animals only, however these prescriptions can be filled at local pharmacies.
Certified Osteopathic Physicians Assistants (OA) and non-certified Osteopathic Physicians Assistants (IO), Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), Neuropathic Doctor (ND) and Optometrist (OD) all are able to write prescriptions with certain restrictions.
Q What information is needed from me before filling my prescription?
A In order to verify the correct identity of the person submitting and picking up prescriptions and for your safety, we collect and keep on file your social security number, date of birth and a photo copy of your ID. All of this information is stored securely and is only available to Pharmacy employees with a need to know the information.
Q Why does the pharmacist call my doctor before refilling my prescriptions?
A A pharmacist may not refill a prescription unless authorized by your doctor. Your doctor may authorize no refills, one refill or several refills on the original prescription. After all of the refills on the original prescription have been used, the pharmacy must obtain a new authorization from your doctor before refilling your prescription.
Even though your doctor may want you to continue to take the prescription for a long period of time, he/she will monitor your drug therapy requiring the pharmacy to contact your doctor each time your prescription needs to be renewed
To avoid delays, give the Pharmacy a call a few days before your medication runs out. This allows the Pharmacy time to get in contact with your doctor and for the doctor’s office to respond to the Pharmacy.
Q I was told that my medication is not covered, what does that mean?
A Insurance companies limit the drugs that they will provide reimbursement for, or “cover”. Generally speaking, when the medications are essentially the same, the insurance companies prefer patients to try generic versions before brands. In some cases, your doctor will have to write a “prior authorization” letter to the insurance company in order to cover more expensive medications for you.
Q Is there a generic equivalent for my brand-name drug?
A To find out if there is a generic option for a drug you are taking, go to DRUGS@FDA catalog of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medications.
Q Where can I get help with enrollment or information for Medicare services?
Q Where can I get help with enrollment or information for Washington State Medicaid (DSHS) services?
A Go to www.dshs.wa.gov, or if you are a client calling for Medicaid information, you may contact DSHS by phone at 1.800.562.3022.
