Respond To Requests

You can respond to renewal (refill) requests by performing one (or both) of the following:

(A) Action: click this dropdown menu and select one of the following desired actions:

  • Deny: This option will deny the request and send a denial message to the pharmacy.
  • Change: This allows you to change the prescription and/or pharmacy information. The prescription becomes a pending prescription in the appropriate provider’s prescription report when the prescription is changed. This will alert the pharmacy that the requested renewal has been denied, but a new prescription will follow.
  • Renew plus (X) refills: This renews the prescription with the desired amount of additional refills. When you choose the appropriate refills, you are authorizing this fill plus X refills of the medication.
  • Forward: This allows a staff member to forward the prescription request to another qualified prescriber in his or her practice.
  • Remove: This should only be used if you have previously handled this request and it is a duplicate.
