In addition to generating Refill Requests, QuickSCRIP is also able to generate Prior-Authorization forms that you can send to your doctor. Click here for the guide on generating Refill Requests.

PA Reqests in FILL and EDIT

Generating a PA Request in QuickSCRIP is very simple.

Go to the RXFILL or EDIT Screen (1 or 6 of the Rx Processing Menu). Search for the prescription you would like to generate a PA Request for. At the bottom of the screen (where you would enter your initials) enter either @2, @3, @M or @T.

  • @2 Generates a PA form for a Medicaid claim and prints it on your designated report printer.
  • @3 Generates a PA form for a Third-Party claim and prints it on your designated report printer.
  • @M Generates a PA form for a Medicaid claim and sends it to Activefax.
  • @T Generates a PA form for a Third-Party claim and sends it to Activefax.

PA Requests through Activefax

QuickSCRIP has the ability to integrate with Activefax. Activefax is a third-party program that converts your computer into a fax machine. Activefax can be setup to send and receive faxes, in addition to allowing you to digitally store, manage, and print them.

Be aware that there is an integration fee and an annual maintenance fee for Activefax integration. The software will be setup to run constantly on a computer (ideally the server) as a background service. You will also need a fax line that can be connected to an external USB fax-modem. Please contact us if you are interested in integrating with Activefax, we also offer a demo period to try it.

Once the software has been installed, generating a refill request is identical to generating it for fax. You will be able to go into the Activefax software and see if the refill request has been successfully transmitted.

Customizing your PA Request form

While all pharmacies are setup with a default PA format, we can customize this document to better meet your individual pharmacy needs. Please contact us if you are interested in having your PA request form modified. Information can be added, removed, rearranged, or re-sized.

We will need a copy of your current form, along with notes on any changes you need. Please specify if the document prints on a laser printer, an okidata or pin-fed printer, or is a form generated in Activefax.
