Hello all! Just wondering whenever you get meds filled and they are due every 28 days, from what day do you start counting? Is it the day you get you prescription, does that count as day one, or is it the next day that counts as day one? Thanks for any help.
If you walk into your pharmacy with a script to be filled, it's really not the pharmacies business if it's been 30 days or 15, as long as your insurance approves the fill and your doctor has given you a new script. My pharmacy has never pulled the fact I was a day early or whatever. I have been denied before, but it was the insurance company not the pharmacy. My insurance (BC/BS) has a five day early fill policy, so I can get a new fill at 25 days, if I would need it.
I must be missing something, If I fill a script on a monday, monday is day 1. If a script is supposed to last 30 days, what does when your insurance will allow you to fill a 30 day script have anything to do with actually counting to 30 and complying with your docs intentions. Math is the universal langauage, it's not open to interpretation, only compliance is. I never realized there could be so much confusion when it comes to counting to 30. I fill on day one and refill on day 30, this is what My doc expects and this is what I do.
i am a bit confused on the question too.when you are on the 28 day schedule,like fabby stated,it is ALWAYS the very same day of the week that you would obtain your script.mine is always wed as i am due to run out and will need the new Rx starting thurs morning.there shouldn't really have to be any counting of days going on,its always that same day of the week on a 28 day schedule.thats what i like most about it.it will never fall on a weekend.its just easier for my brain to keep track of.the less hassle up there the better.marcia
