What is a pharmacy tech?
The pharmacy technician is integral to the overall function of the pharmacy itself, working in both the customer service and pharmaceutical side of the business. Pharmacy techs help licensed pharmacists by obtaining information from customers, which is then used to fill prescriptions. In addition, pharmacy techs can expect to prepare prescriptions by counting tablets, compounding medications, labeling prescriptions, accepting payments, and processing insurance information.
