The WSPA is excited to announce that the Washington State Senate unanimously concurred ESSB 5557 - Pharmacists as Providers Status.

The bill will now go to the Governor's desk.  If signed, Washington State will be the first in the country to require that pharmacists are included in health insurance provider networks. This will help pharmacists across the state provide high quality of care to an increased number of patients and improve access to primary care.

Thank you to all the passionate pharmacists who have worked so hard on this bill - this is a huge milestone. Also a big thank you to Representative Shelly Short, Representative Eileen Cody and, Senator (and Pharmacist) Linda Evans Parlette!
