Until they are actually asked to fill a prescription, they don't have a
job. And where I am concerned, they actually went to my physician and
asked to change a prescribed medication before I had even requested a
prescription of that particular medication. That isn't conscientious, it
is ambitious and ought to be illegal, if it isn't already. We have asked
for an attorney to look into this for us and have notified our insurance
commissioner. My own employer has already tried to tell me I can't work if
I take certain medications, under the assumption that I was taking them in
the first place. When questioned about where they had gotten their
information, they wouldn't respond. I threatened them with a lawsuit and
they were fined for invasion of privacy. Those of you who don't value your
privacy had better take a quick look over your shoulder. Wake up people!
