    Folks, my friend recalls from memory that Rite Aid sent out a memo in 2013 about them getting audited and fined over 1 million dollars for giving too much insulin pens as 1 box and bill for just 28 days.
    The argument among pharmacist was that: box of "insulin pen" is not break-able.
    However, because of the audit and penalty, Rite Aid wanted pharmacies to break box and dispense enough insulin pens. Still, many did not recall reading or seeing that memo.
    Anyone can please find that old memo and post it here to settle the argument? The memo was sent from Corporate Headquarters to all pharmacists in 2013. I am sure with 100 thousands employees, someone can find that memo and post it here (because Rite Aid only allows old email to be kept within a few short weeks.)
    That memo is gone now. But the argument among pharmacists is still going on.
    Like it or not, we have to follow the policy of the company that pays our check.
    If someone can please find that memo and post the memo here, we would really appreciate your help.
    Thanks from a bunch of confusing and arguing pharmacists and technicians.....

    I don't have the memo unfortunately but I distinctly remember Nexgen listing lantus solostar as quantity of 15ml and it autorounding anything not in 15ml increments next highest 15ml interval, this was back in 2011ish. Many people as a result got in a habit of rounding to the nearest box, obviously this is not the case now and 3ml increments are used but when the change happened I'm not sure - likely a result of the disciplinary case you mentioned.

Discover dr kotb best recommendation as Insulin Cooler for Lantus SoloStar HERE =============https://amzn.to/2LydI90 Lantus Usage Follow the instructions given by your doctor about the type or types of insulin you are using. Do not make any changes with your insulin unless you have talked to your doctor. Your insulin needs may change because of illness, stress, other medicines, or changes in diet or activity level. Talk to your doctor about how to adjust your insulin dose. You may take Lantus at any time during the day but you must take it at the same time every day. Only use Lantus that is clear and colorless. If your Lantus is cloudy or slightly colored, return it to your pharmacy for a replacement. Follow your doctor's instructions for testing your blood sugar. Inject Lantus under your skin (subcutaneously) in your upper arm, abdomen (stomach area), or thigh (upper leg). Never inject it into a vein or muscle. Change (rotate) injection sites within the same body area. Lantus 10 mL vial (U-100): The syringe must be new and must not contain any other medicine. Do not mix Lantus with any other type of insulin. Follow these steps to draw insulin into syringe: 1. Wash your hands with soap and water or with alcohol. 2. Check the insulin to make sure it is clear and colorless. Do not use the insulin after the expiration date stamped on the label, if it is colored or cloudy, or if you see particles in the solution. 3. If you are using a new vial, remove the protective cap. Do not remove the stopper. 4. Wipe the top of the vial with an alcohol swab. You do not have to shake the vial of Lantus before use. 5. Use a new needle and a U-100 syringe every time you give an injection. Use disposable syringes and needles only once. Throw them away properly. Never share needles and syringes. 6. Draw air into the syringe equal to your insulin dose. Put the needle through the rubber top of the vial and push the plunger to inject the air into the vial. 7. Leave the syringe in the vial and turn both upside down. Hold the syringe and vial firmly in one hand. 8. Make sure the tip of the needle is in the insulin. With your free hand, pull the plunger to withdraw the correct dose into the syringe. 9. Before you take the needle out of the vial, check the syringe for air bubbles. If bubbles are in the syringe, hold the syringe straight up and tap the side of the syringe until the bubbles float to the top. Push the bubbles out with the plunger and draw insulin back in until you have the correct dose. 10. Remove the needle from the vial. Do not let the needle touch anything. You are now ready to inject. Inject Lantus under your skin. Take Lantus as prescribed by your doctor. Follow these steps to inject Lantus: Decide on an injection area - either upper arm, thigh or abdomen. Injection sites within an injection area must be different from one injection to the next. Use alcohol or soap and water to clean the injection site. The injection site should be dry before you inject. Pinch the skin. Stick the needle in the way your healthcare provider showed you. Release the skin. Slowly push in the plunger of the syringe all the way, making sure you have injected all the insulin. Leave the needle in the skin for about 10 seconds. Pull the needle straight out and gently press on the spot where you injected yourself for several seconds. Do not rub the area. Follow your healthcare providers instructions for throwing away the used needle and syringe. Do not recap the used needle. Used needle and syringe should be placed in sharps containers (such as red biohazard containers), hard plastic containers (such as detergent bottles), or metal containers (such as an empty coffee can). Such containers should be sealed and disposed of properly. Lantus SoloStar It is important to read, understand, and follow the step-by-step instructions before using SoloStar disposable insulin pen. Failure to follow the instructions may result in getting too much or too little insulin. Lantus Dosage Take Lantus exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully. The dose of Lantus must be individualized based on several factors including your medical conditions, other insulin doses you are receiving, other medicines you are taking, and how your body responds to Lantus. In people with type 1 diabetes, Lantus must be used along with a short-acting insulin. The recommended starting Lantus dose for people with type 2 diabetes is 10 units (U) once daily, if no other insulin is being used.
