What does a Pharmacy Technician do?

Pharmacy Technician duties can vary depending on where they work. Usually, Pharmacy Technicians are responsible for receiving and confirming prescriptions—verifying patient insurance coverage. Responsibilities can also include preparing and filling prescriptions along with organizing and managing inventory. In addition, Pharmacy Technicians spend a large amount of time interacting with customers, both over the phone and in person. They also process payments for prescriptions and arrange for individuals to speak with the Pharmacist if they have additional questions about their medicine. In most states, technicians can call physicians with prescription refill authorizations and compound or mix certain medications.
