Pharmacy Violating Labor Code 3751(b)

The patient captioned below presented to CVS/pharmacy to have a Workers' Compensation prescription filled. The patient presented the a completed Doctors First Report of Injury [DWC Form 1] and PR-2 to the pharmacist, nevertheless with disregard for California law she was charged a $17.25 co-pay. This is clearly a violation of labor code 3751(b); Claimants are not liable for payments of medications and should NOT be billed directly.
