Ohio’s pharmacy deans advocate for pharmacist reimbursements

Deans of Ohio’s colleges of pharmacy met with Senator Matt Dolan to discuss his bill, SB 265, which supports insurance reimbursements for pharmacists. The bill permits certain health insurers to provide payment or reimbursement for services lawfully provided by a pharmacist and to recognize pharmacist services in certain other laws.

The narrative of the meeting was around how majoring in pharmacy is a pathway towards the middle class and that pharmacists serve as pillars in many communities throughout Ohio.  The pharmacy deans are working on providing a white paper for Senator Dolan and members of each College’s legislative delegation.
