Important Information about Medication Dispensing in the Wellness Center

Changes to the Medication Dispensing Procedures at the NISD Employee Health and Wellness Center

It has come to our attention recently that Wellness Centers in Texas must change medication dispensing procedures. Unfortunately, Texas state law prohibits dispensing medications for more than a 3-day (72 hours) supply.

However, we now have the ability to give patients Wal-Mart vouchers for no cost medications that are provided through the Wellness Center. Dr. Morgan makes every attempt to provide covered employees and their dependents; there may be unique situations that require medications that are not provided through the Health and Wellness Center. In that case the employee and/or dependent would be subject to deductibles and co-insurance according to their district medical plan. 

For a list of the medications that are provided through the Health and Wellness Center please visit the Wellness Center / Home on the district’s website.

Medications that are currently available in the NISD Employee Health and Wellness Center clinics will still be available, but Dr. Morgan may only dispense a 3-day supply for any single medication. 

 

General Medications

1) Patient is prescribed a medication on the formulary.

2) A 3-day supply is dispensed to the patient if desired.

4) Patient receives medication at no cost.

 

For Chronic Medication Refills (90-day supply only)

3) Provider writes a 90-day script.

4) Office staff will complete the Voucher, and faxes voucher and prescription to any Wal-Mart.
