Dispensing Status Code

SAS Name

This field indicates how the pharmacy dispensed the complete quantity of the prescription. When the pharmacy partially fills a prescription, this field indicates a partial fill.

When the full quantity is dispensed at one time, this field is blank.


This variable has been retired, therefore the field is blank after 2010 service dates.
