This week, the federal provider status legislation, entitled The Pharmacy and Medically Underserved Areas Enhancement Act, was introduced in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. The House bill, H.R. 592, was introduced by Reps. Brett Guthrie (R-KY), G.K. Butterfield (D-NC), Todd Young (R-IN), and Ron Kind (D-WI). The Senate bill, S. 314, was introduced by Sens. Charles Grassley (R-IA), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Bob Casey (D-PA). Similar to 2014's, H.R. 4190, the provisions will provide access to pharmacist provided patient care services to Medicare beneficiaries in medically underserved communities. These bills are the key priorities for the Patient Access to Pharmacists' Care Coalition (PAPCC), which the WSPA participates in through the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations.
