Permission to pick up prescriptions 4.28.17
Protecting patient’s privacy is one of the top priorities of Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy. Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy will only release prescriptions to patients or their authorized representatives.
Patients or their authorized representatives must present valid picture ID at the register. For dependent children (18 years old and younger), parent or legal guardian may pick up medications with their own ID Card. Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy reserves the right to exercise professional judgment in determining when a parent or guardian may not be a minor’s personal representative, such as when a minor has the legal right to consent to care, when a minor obtains care pursuant to court order, or by agreement of a parent or guardian. In such cases, Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy may be prohibited from disclosing a minor’s health information. Tulalip members are also required to present their Tulalip ID when prescriptions are processed through the Tulalip Prescription Plan. Tulalip Tribal Members will not be required to show picture ID if a copy of their ID is already on file with the Pharmacy to verify identity.
To authorize pick-up by another person:
- Patient or legal guardian must fill out and sign the Prescription Pick up Authorization Form. Pick-up Authorization will remain valid throughout the calendar year and must be renewed after December 31st of each year. Patient can also revoke it at any time.
- Patient or legal guardian can also authorize a one-time pick-up over the phone. Pharmacy staff will make a good faith effort to confirm identity of the caller and document the authorization in patient’s profile.
- Pharmacy Director may use discretion to deny or revoke a pick up authorization if he/she feels patient’s care or privacy will be compromised.
