Prescription Medications

Sid’s Pharmacy is here to meet all your prescription medication needs. You can request refills by phone, on our website, or with our smartphone app (link)

Our goal is to fill all walk-in prescriptions within 15 minutes and refill phone and on-line requests within one hour.

All refills must be authorized by the doctor at least once per year. The label on your prescription bottle will tell you if you have refills remaining and indicate when the prescription expires.

If your prescription has expired or is out of refills, please call 3 business days in advance so we have time to contact your physician for a refill authorization.

A few medications are tightly controlled and require a new signed prescription each time. These are most often pain medications. For these medications, we cannot get authorization from your doctor by fax or phone. You must bring the pharmacy an original, signed copy of the prescription for each fill.

Prescription FAQ

Giving you a price is not as easy as reading a price sticker. If you have insurance, we will need to input the full prescription information into the computer to find out your co-pay. If you do not have insurance, we will do our best to give you the lowest possible price.

Our goal is to accurately fill your prescription within 15 minutes. The wait time may be longer if we have not yet received the prescription from the physician; your insurance denies the claim and we need to contact them; if the prescription instructions are unclear and we need to contact the physician for clarification; or we are experiencing a high volume of prescription requests and there are other customers ahead of you. We will keep you updated if there are any problems which may prevent us from filling your prescription in a timely manner.

In order to fill a prescription for 90 days, the physician must write the prescription for that quantity. Contact your physician and let him/her know you would like a 90 day supply. In some cases the insurance company will not allow us to fill more than a 30 day supply.

Medication Compliance Packaging

Our medication compliance packaging system (bubble packing) is designed to eliminate confusion and help you to keep track of your prescriptions.

Your medications are organized into 4 different time slots and placed into either a blister card or a reusable container. Each device can hold a seven day supply of medications.

You no longer need to worry about what medications to take when or even if you took your medications. If you do not remember taking a dose simply check your card or device to see if you have missed any doses.

We coordinate your meds. Bubble packs can be filled on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis.

Home delivery is available. For more information on bubble-packing, call us at 509-334-6506.

Medication Packaging FAQ

If you or a family member are on multiple medications and/or have difficulty remembering what medications to take when, this can make taking and tracking medication easier. Specifically, people on a complicated medication regimen (4 or more medications), patients with memory problems or visual impairment and people who are under the care of a caregiver would benefit from medication compliance packaging.

The bubble-packing fee is $18/month. Does insurance pay for it? It is not covered by most insurance companies, but Washington Medicaid does cover the fee in certain situations.

This system is ideal for tablets and capsules that need to be taken on a regular basis. Medications that are to be taken on an as-needed basis, liquids, or items that require refrigeration would be packaged separately.

We will need a copy of the prescription insurance card, a credit card to keep on file for medication co-pays and bubble pack fees any instructions from the patient or doctor on when the medication is being taken. Call us at 509-334-6506 to set up a filling and delivery schedule.
