Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Pharmacy Practice Act. Requires the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation to adopt rules requiring pharmacy prescription systems, including, but not limited to, electronic systems, to contain mechanisms to require prescription discontinuation orders to be forwarded to a pharmacy, to require patient verification features for pharmacy automated prescription refills, and to require that automated prescription refills notices clearly communicate to patients the medication name, dosage strength, and any other information required by the Department governing the use of automated dispensing and storage systems. Provides that the rules shall ensure that discontinued medications are not automatically dispensed to a patient by a pharmacist or by any automatic refill dispensing system whether prescribed through electronic or paper prescriptions.
