eRx Renewal Request: Proxy Response

Updated: 06/09/2023|Views: 3518

Users assigned as an eRx proxy can respond to renewal request sent by the pharmacy on behalf of the provider.

A renewal request is sent from the pharmacy when:

  • The pharmacy has received a renewal request from the patient
  • The pharmacy has an automatic prescription renewal program that triggers a renewal request when a prescription is about to expire or the last refill has been used

Note: The renewal request expires 2 weeks after the request is received. If a response is not sent within 2 weeks, the status remains as New and further action on the request cannot be taken by the provider or proxy.

Access Renewal Requests

  1. Hover over the Clinical icon and click on eRx Request. The Renewal Requests tab displays.
  2. Click View. The Renewal Received page opens.

Approve Renewal Request
