Don't worry won't bore anyone with reason or gory details.  LOL

But here is something new, at least to me:  Although I was given 5 prescriptions for meds that had to be fill by the drug store there was one I had to purchase from the doctor's office.  I started to give her my RX card but she said no they don't file forms with the insurance company I have to pay for the full cost.  And it wasn't exactly cheap.

May be a necessity in this case but just for the heck of it I thought I would Google about doctors dispensing meds and came up with this:

Insurers Pay Big Markups as Doctors Dispense Drugs

However, as I said the insurance wasn't paying for this med, only me.  I can't recall ever having to purchase meds from the doctor before, has anyone ever had to do that?

I notice the box, at the bottom, does say "Dispensed Only by Physicians" so I guess it's something that has be be monitored closely.  Still I wonder how much of a markup there is.  Probably not much, this IS the best doctor in the world!   LOL

That seems odd to me, dispensed by physician should mean a prescription, not over the counter.

Well it's not an over the counter med really.  I've never seen a box containing meds with a note that says "Dispensed Only by Physicians".  If anything a box or bottle usually says something like:  By Prescription Only.  

Like I said I was given 5 prescriptions to fill at the drug store, this one was the only one I had to purchase in the doctor's office.  As a rule I don't think he dispenses drugs like addressed by the article.

First time for me and was just wondering if anyone has ever had to do that.
