Texas: Patient Questions

Do you provide medications for patients?  Have you had any patients have an asthma exacerbation with being seen in the bus?

yes, we provide medications to patients through our sample program. We have an outpatient pharmacy at our home site, which is a great resource for the sample program. I am not sure if we've actually had a patient have an exacberation while physcially on the bus. I will see what Dr. Sharkey's experience has been.

Also, if the patient has insurance, we will write scripts for meds.  Our bus is kept full of samples from in kind donations from pharmaceutical companies.
