The pharmacy will fill outside prescriptions for medications that are on the SDHC Formulary. All outside prescriptions will be ready within one-hour from dropping off the outside prescription. For all outside prescriptions that are not on the SDHC Formulary patients are required to see their Designated Primary Care Provider so that a Non-Formulary medication request form may be submitted to the Pharmacy for approval.
If approved, all request take approximately 48-hours for special procurement. Patients with outside prescriptions for Controlled Substances that have been filled at another pharmacy will not be filled until the days’ supply has lapsed. If a patient has violated our SDHC Controlled Substance Usage Agreement contract or any other Health Center/Provider Pain contracts the SDHC Pharmacy reserves the right to refuse to fill any outside prescriptions for Controlled Substances.
If a patient is filling multiple outside Controlled Substances at other pharmacies, per the New Mexico Prescription Monitoring Program (NM-PMP) report, the pharmacy will notify your Designated Primary Care Provider and the outside proscription will have to be approved by your Provider.
Patients on a Pain Contract from another health center may be required to see their Designated Primary Care Provider or the pharmacy may not fill their outside prescription. If you have any questions or concerns in regards to filling your outside prescriptions at the SDHC Pharmacy we recommend that you contact us at 505-465-3073.
Behind the Pharmacy Window
Santo Domingo Health Center Pharmacy is not like your typical retail pharmacy. Here's why:
We check every new prescription with your lab results and other medications to make sure you're getting the right dose the first time.
We can also dispense medical supplies for certain conditions such as diabetes meters and testing strips, nebulizers, syringes, sharps containers, pillboxes etc., making our pharmacy truly a "one-stop shop."
Our pharmacists take the time to educate you about your medicines: how and when to take them, how to manage side effects, what they're for.
We stock one of the largest varieties of medicines of any tribal health center, and we keep up with new drugs on the market.
