View Full Version : Ohio to limit prescription transfers to 1 time a year on 1/1/11
"Assistant director Tim Benedict says the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy approved the restriction last month because of concerns about paperwork and patient safety. He tells The Columbus Dispatch that if you keep transferring prescriptions around, you're eventually going to have problems."

Uh...what? Doesn't the government have anything better to do than police where you get your meds? Seriously unless you or the pharmacy are handing out illegal substances you should have the right to pay for your damned overpriced drugs anywhere you want!! If the pharmacists are spending too much time "transferring" Rx's that sounds like something the stores should be managing and dealing with on a company level. The gov't needs to butt out!

Wow- Our prescription plan limits you to 3 tranfers to stores other than CVS- so I am pretty much stuck with them- I may just go to the 3 month plan and transfer them around that way

It's against the law in Arkansas to offer perks for transfers....no gc's here :(
After reading the article, I wondered how many other states had this law in effect. Or how many would follow this?

I know NY didn't have them either. When i was preggo with Dominic, we were in the process of moving back to PA. I would schedule my Dr Visits down here on long weeekends for the girls, and then get my prenatal script filled while I was here. I would go back and forth and every other was at ACME cause they would give $5 over what ever the transfer coupon was for! I figured I would hit the drugstores and then Acme, and have gift cards to restock the freezer after the move! It was great back then, as my script only cost $10 and I would get $25-$30 each time I moved it.
This year scripts have gone up to $30 anyway, so it isn't as worth it.
