去藥房 At the Pharmacy 健康

生病看醫生,一般都會給病人開藥。在美國,如生病看醫生,一般都會給病人開藥。在美國,如果購買了醫療保險的話,醫藥的費用都由保險公司負責。病人有時候需要付部分費用,如診金或藥物,需自付20 元、30 元至50 元不等,視乎保險公司的條款而定。一般情況下,買了醫療保險的醫藥費會比較划算。

買藥的時候,把藥方和醫療保險的資料先拿到藥房登記(現在有些診所直接把藥方傳真到藥房),藥劑師和店員會協助您把藥配好,你付了應付的費用後就可取藥。所購藥物的剩餘費用藥房會向保險公司索取。以下是在藥房買藥的英語會話,幫助您學習跟店員對答:

店員: 您好!我能如何幫助您?
Jim: I would like to dropoff a prescription.
吉姆: 我想留下我的藥方。
Clerk: Okay, have you been here before?
