Austin Physicans Sue Texas to Dispense Scrips


  • Two Austin doctors are suing the State of Texas
  • Austin doctors Mike Garrett and Kristin Held want to lift the state’s band which prevents doctors from dispensing medications they prescribe to their patients
  • A bill was proposed earlier this year which would give Texan doctors the authority to dispense certain drugs but was never approved
  • Dr. Garrett says comparatively, dispensing prescriptions in office would be much cheaper for the patient
  • According to the Texas Medical Board, two related studies on primary care prescriptions say 31.3% of prescriptions never get filled, and nearly 66% of people didn’t fill those prescriptions because of the high cost
