Did you every get a prescription filled by a treating doctor at that doctor's office? The doctor who wishes to become a pharmacy, is a new and growing business. In the world of Florida Workers' Compensation, this has become a new money maker too. Many authorized workers' compensation physicians prescribe medication and than fill the prescription at their office-charging the carrier for the privilege.
There was legislation proposed which would have required the physician's prescription price to the same charged at the local pharmacy. Lobbying money by physicians and related groups quashed the proposal.
