Bring Your Medications With You
Patients scheduled for outpatient procedures (surgery, endoscopy, cardiac catheterization) can save money by bringing their prescription and over-the-counter medications that they already take at home with them to the hospital. Insurance carriers or Medicare may not cover the cost of medications that you must continue to take during your outpatient stay.
Medications must be in their original container and labeled with the name of the medication, dosage and correct frequency. The label for a prescription medication must also include the patient’s name.
Home medications cannot be used if:
- Medications are in a pill organizer.
- Medication bottles contain more than one type of medication.
- Medications are in a multi-dose vial for injection (e.g., an insulin vial that is used at home that contains more than one dose). Insulin pens can be used.
- If the medication is a liquid/elixir (e.g. cough medication).
- If the medication is a Narcotic or Controlled Substance – these must be dispensed from the Pharmacy. You may leave these medications at home.
If you arrive without your medications, you will be encouraged to send someone home to bring them to you.
