The patient was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and was recently discharged from the hospital. It is important that the patient take the medication and comply with home medications. The cost of the medication without insurance (cash price) is about $300.00. However, the patient does not have enough money with them to pay the cash price. (There are certain drug companies that offer discounts or free trials for medications)

The medication was written with the following directions: Norco 7.5 mg/ 325 mg, dispense # 60 tablets, sig: 1 tab QID prn for pain. The same medication and directions were filled at another pharmacy 3 days ago, but from a different doctor. After speaking to the patient, they inform you that they are willing to pay cash for the medication because they need it. Upon further inspection of the prescription, you notice that there might be an issue with the DEA # as well. The DEA # was invalid. The technician was told by the doctor’s office that a script pad was recently stolen from the office and that the patient in question was not prescribed the above medication.
