Very interesting info....could be it is an AZ requirement for the Drug testing at my PMD's office. I have no issues with it, its my understanding they are testing to make sure you are only taking prescribed meds. It is fully covered by Medicare!
I have an appointment in 2 weeks, I am going to ask why drug tests are being done and who is requiring them. I'll let you know their response!
It doesn't bother me that they are doing the test, a few times I have gone to my PMD's office and some of the people truly look like druggies. I've thought to myself geez I just don't fit this picture. As long as Medicare covers the test and I don't have to pay out of pocket, I'll keep wee weeing lol. No seriously, I think its a good thing for we CPers who stay on only Rx'd drugs. It is getting out of hand with all the Internet availability.
I am still going to ask for clarification when I see him on the 28th.
