Guidelines and Fee Schedule for Medicine●On●Time®   

Here at Snell’s Pharmacy, we offer the Medicine●On●Time®   packaging system, ideal for use in personal care facilities, as well as for any patient who desires a more regimental and systematic method to have multiple medications packaged. 
 
Our packaging schedule is based on a 28-day cycle*. The due dates for upcoming cycles will be about the same time every month. 
 
We guarantee** medications delivered*** on the night before the cycle begins. The process of preparing the bubble packed medications is time consumptive and labor intensive.   We must have a valid credit card (Visa, MC, or Discover) on file. We ask that a credit card be brought in to our facility for an initial scan to log it into the patient’s profile. Receipts for all charged items will be mailed, in the name of the patient, to the address we have on file.  If you have Power of Attorney over a family member or loved one we require a copy in the file in order to comply with HIPAA regulations so we may discuss the patient’s therapy with you.  To help us stay on course and to fulfill our goals we have developed a guideline and fee schedule. 

Medications can be changed only by the orders of a physician.  If you wish to implement any changes, please have the doctor call with official medication orders.  Orders changed after a cycle has been delivered will be subject to a repack fee.

By Federal Law, medication that has left the confines of the pharmacy cannot be taken back and re-sold.  This applies to Medicine-On-Time as well.  There can be no refunds for medication that is not resalable.

In developing guidelines for this system, we have established 2 tiers of participation.  The fees and rules differ slightly between them.  The guidelines and associated fee schedules are as follows:

 I.      Patients who fill medications through our facility:

 *      We will package and deliver your medications for the cost of the prescription plus a packing fee of $5.00 per Rx per month.  This fee will be on a separate MOT receipt along with the receipts for medications filled. OTC medication will be done at a cost of $10.00 each, this includes packaging and medication for most**** products.

*      We will be in contact with your physician to ensure the medications have ample refills so that no stoppage in dosing occurs.

*      Medication and dosage changes will be taken care of as quickly as possible.  We will make same day adjustments on regimens as long as notification is received by 5 O’clock; otherwise it will be done on the next day.  Friday and holiday changes will be done on the next business day. Of course, this excludes life threatening situations, which will be handled ASAP. 

*      Changes in therapy that occur mid-cycle, and require retrieval and re-delivery of cycle pack for breakdown and repacking, will be charged a $5.00 per card repacking fee.

II.     Patients who do not fill medications through our facility(Mail order):

*      Package and delivery fee for medications brought in from outside sources will be charged $5.00 per prescription per month. This fee will be on a separate MOT receipt. 

*      OTC medication will be done at a cost of $10.00 each, this includes packaging and medication for most**** products.

*      You will be responsible for knowing when the patient’s next cycle is due. You must have all medications turned in to us no later than 7 days before the due date. We cannot and will not be held responsible for medication delays and stoppages in therapy for medication that come from external sources

*      You will be responsible for maintaining refill records and having ample refills from the MD to keep the regimen going. If we have to call you or the doctor, there will be a processing fee of $10.00.

*      Any outside medication that comes back to our facility due to status change will be stored for a maximum of 2 weeks then will be destroyed according to the laws governing such drugs. Please notify us if you need to arrange a pick-up.

*      We will require on file a signed waiver to allow us to use our stock in the case of medication changes or medication shortage from the outsourced prescriptions.  

*      Changes in therapy that occur mid-cycle that require retrieval and re-delivery of cycle pack for breakdown and repacking will be charged a $5.00 per card repacking fee.

 

We currently service over 150 patients in various facilities, so it is the responsibility of the family or guardian to notify us of any change in the patient’s status that would affect or render un-necessary the preparation and delivery of medication.  In the event that the medication is packaged and delivered when unnecessary, there will be no refund for medication and packaging fees.  In the event that medicines are packaged, but not delivered, there will be a restocking fee, but the price of the medication will be refunded.

We at Snell’s Pharmacy look forward to assisting you and your loved ones with any and all of your pharmaceutical needs.  If you have any questions or would like us to package your medication, please don’t hesitate to call us at 770-972-0700.

Notice: Packing fees and the price of medication are subject to change without prior notification.
