What can a pharmacist add or change to a CII prescription?
After a pharmacist obtains approval of the prescribing practitioner who wrote the CII prescription, a pharmacist can add or change:
• The strength of the drug prescribed
• The quantity of the drug prescribed
• The directions for use
• The patient’s date of birth
• The ICD-10 code
• The day’s supply
• The date of issuance can be ‘corrected’, if written in error, but not changed (i.e. the practitioner inadvertently wrote the prior year on New Year’s Day of the current year).
