30 DAY TO 90 DAY FILLING
ATTENTION ALL PHARMACISTS!

The Board issued a new policy statement regarding changing a 30-day supply to a 90-day supply. If a legend medication is written by a physician and it's given a 30- day supply with an appropriate number of refills, the pharmacist can fill that prescription as a 90-day supply with the commensurate number of refills without contacting the physician to obtain a new prescription. For example, if a prescription is written with 5 refills, you may fill it as two 90-day supply prescriptions. This will aid the public health in being able to give the patient a 90-day supply at a time and improving compliance.

ALBOP LEGISLATION PASSED:

PROVIDER STATUS FOR PHARMACISTS IS OFFICIAL!
ALBOP legislation, HB170, passed yesterday afternoon, which clarifies the definition of a pharmacist: "PHARMACIST. Any person licensed by the board to practice the profession of pharmacy AS A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER in the State of Alabama and whose license is in good standing."

This is a big step forward for pharmacy in Alabama, and we are so excited for the positive changes this new legislation will bring! Congratulations to all pharmacists in the state, and thank you for your constant support, unity, and drive to advocate for this profession.
