QuickSCRIP Settings

QuickSCRIP has many options and settings that can influence how and when you can enter a DAW code.

Insurance File Maintenance

You can access the Insurance FM screen by choosing number 14 from the Processing Menu, hitting F6 in the FILL screen (which will take you to the primary insurance), or by choosing F9 (Which will take you to the Customer File Maintenance Screen) and selecting an insurance from there.

Note: Changing a setting in the Insurance Vendor File will only affect that specific insurance vendor.

Dispense as Written? (Line 17)

  • Y will always prompt for the DAW.

Program RXC (Line 20)

  • /WAx you can set x = DAW code. Will default to this code, and NOT prompt user for DAW.
  • /WQx you can set x = DAW code. Will default to this code, but will still ask user during fill process.
  • /WN defaults to NO on the DAW question.
  • /WDR Uses the default DAW code in the drug notes line.
  • /W1 Limits DAW choices to No, Doctor Specified, or Customer Specified (0,1,2)

Business/Control File Settings

You can access the Business Control File from the Quickscrip Main Menu, choose option 3 for Utilities, and then choose option 3 again for Business Control File. As a shortcut, you can simply type UB from the Main Menu.

Note: Changes made in the Business Control File are system-wide, and will impact ALL insurances and how they behave in the FILL screen.
