Are We a Covered Entity?

A business associate provides no medical advice, medical services, medical devices, etc. But it talks to patients of the covered entity. Those patients tell the business associate what prescriptions they have for prescription drugs and when they must be refilled. The business associate faxes the refill request to the pharmacy. Does that make the business associate a covered entity?
