About Capital City Medical Associates
Welcome To Capital City Medical Associates
At Capital City Medical Associates, we have a team of healthcare professionals who make up one of the most comprehensive adult healthcare resources in the Columbus area. We work hard to make life better by caring for the whole patient…for life!
Sub-Specialty Treatments & Programs
We offer nerve testing, bone densitometry, lab services, joint fluid therapy, BWC/ and personal injury, pulmonary function testing and treatment, allergy testing and treatment, and trigger point injections.
Please bring your photo ID, insurance card and any copays (if applicable) to present at that time. If you are a new patient, we kindly ask that you arrive 20-30 minutes prior to their scheduled visit. If you are an existing patient, please arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your scheduled visit. There is a 20 minute grace period for scheduled appointment late arrivals and cancellations should be called in at least 24 hours in advance.
Prescription Policies and Information
Prescriptions and refills will be handled at scheduled office visits and enough medicine will be prescribed to last at least until the patient’s next appointment. Since we expect to fill prescriptions at the office visit, running out may be a signal that it is time to call our office to schedule an appointment. We request the patient bring ALL medicine bottles to each appointment or a complete detailed list of medications to include: dosage, frequency and route. If a refill request is needed, please allow 48-72 business hours to complete the request.
We request patients be seen annually for routine medication refills. If your prescription insurance plan requires a prior authorization for a medication, you will be responsible for obtaining a Prior Authorization Form from your insurance company for your physician to complete. While our office staff and physicians do their best to help patients obtain their maximum prescription benefits, insurance plans, including drug coverage plans, are a contract between the patient and the patient's insurance company.
If you need to change pharmacies or change your prescription to mail order, the law in the State of Ohio permits non-expired prescriptions to be transferred to the new pharmacy without charge or interruption. In the case of most mail order pharmacies, they disregard this provision and require prescriptions to be re-written. In the event that this is preferred by the patient BEFORE their next routine visit, the patient has a couple of choices:
- Make an appointment to see the doctor for repeat refills
- Wait for their next regular visit to change pharmacies
- Pay a fee for the patient's physician to review their medical records and re-write the prescription - which will then need to be picked up at the office. Lost prescriptions for controlled medications (such as pain medications, sleeping aides, etc.) will not be replaced.
We discourage the practice of calling in prescriptions as it does not allow the patient or the doctor to re-evaluate the appropriateness of the prescription, and follow the condition for which the medication has been prescribed. We do not accept calls from pharmacies to refill medications. When pharmacies call us, we request contact directly with the patient.
