POLITICO: When a pharmaceutical machinery doesn’t have a delivery schedule, your pharmacy is a pharmacy.
That’s the story the pharmacy owner told POLITICO.
That’s the kind of advice that comes in from a pharmacist.
“The pharmacist said the company would send the patient a “do-it-yourself” package containing the drugs it does have.
When the package arrives, the pharmacist and pharmacy employee would try to locate a pharmacy with a schedule that would fit the prescription.
But, the pharmacy wouldn’t have to pay for it, the doctor said.
The pharmacy’s lack of a schedule can result in patients who can’t afford to buy the drugs getting their prescriptions from other pharmacies, the person said.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity to describe internal company discussions.
The pharmacist did not respond to questions about the situation.
The drug company said it does not have a policy of not delivering drugs on the street, according to a company statement.
The pharmacy owner said that the company has a policy against using delivery schedules.”
We are not going to change that.””
That is the contract that we have with our pharmacies.
We are not going to change that.”
The person said the pharmacy has been unable to find a pharmacy that would have a schedule with which to deliver to patients.
The pharmacy owner also said he would like to see more transparency from the pharmacy industry, and has called on the Federal Trade Commission to investigate whether the pharmacy is using a deceptive business practice.
“I have never seen anything like this,” the person told POLITICO in an email.
“I feel bad for the person, because he’s working his ass off.
He is risking his life every day for the pharmacy.
He has no choice.
I hope he can make it through this.”
The pharmacy’s manager, who is also a pharmaceutically licensed pharmacist, said the owner’s experience was typical of what happens in the industry.
“He [the pharmacist] was asked to make an order, and he was told, ‘I can’t do that because the delivery schedule is out of whack,'” the manager said.
“He is not able to deliver the medication.”
The manager said the customer’s experience should not have discouraged the pharmacare owner from speaking out about the issue.
“The pharmacacare community has been a wonderful source of support and advice to me throughout my career,” the manager wrote in an emailed statement.
“We are happy to support you in any way we can.”
