SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Ok, I do want this to turn this into a political issue Obamacar ve RomneyCare vs Status Quo, nut as I Pharmacist manager for a very busy CVS we (pharmacist) are require to make mandatory 8 day calls which are calls to customers who have new prescriptions that have been in the waiting bin for 7 days. Also I loo at the amount of RTS(Return to stock) prescriptions and I am seeing a pattern that most of those meds that are returned are prescriptions that are on cash and quite frankly the cost says they can't afford to purchase the meds. Now one obvious option would have been to call the MD to substitute to a cheaper generic, but that's not always possible in all situations. However, what if hypothetically speaking everyone had to carry Health Insurance and you would imaine most would have some sort of prescription- would this not overall be a huge benefit for both Pharmacy, Insurance Companies and Drug manufacturers as well? It seems like it would be a simple supply and demand where prices should level off in all 3 of those sectors because you have a wider pool of people accessing the information. Retail pharmacies would justifiably be busier overall but I am beginning to think that perhaps some sort of Health Plan would benefit Pharmacies overall in general. Let's face what's going to be an easier sell a person with insurance that has a co-pay of $25.00 for Nexium or a person with no Insurance where the cash price is $199? Does anyone see where mandatory Health Insurance would hurt the Pharmacy business or even the Insurance companies?
