Central Filling Services
A “central fill” pharmacy is essentially a pharmacy that is filling prescriptions or orders for medication that originate at a pharmacy other than itself. For example, if Pharmacy “A” may have prescriptions or medication orders they are not able to fill for one reason or another. They may pursue a relationship with a pharmacy that is able to fill the prescription or order. With the quickly changing landscape of compounding, these reasons are much more prevalent today than they were four years ago.Download Our Central Fill Contract
Common Reasons Pharmacies Cannot Complete Prescription Orders
- The pharmacy is not licensed in the state where prescription or order needs to be sent.
- The medication prescribed or ordered is a sterile medication and the originating pharmacy does not produce sterile drugs.
- The medication requested is for office use, clinic use or hospital use and needs to be compounded by a special 503B FDA outsourcing facility. With the quickly changing landscape of compounding, these reasons are much more prevalent today than they were four years ago.
