Petition to recognized Pharmacists as healthcare providers under the Social Security Act begins to gain more steam. The petition is entirely spread through word of mouth of pharmacists, pharmacy students, interns, technicians, patients and the general public. Take a moment to sign the petition and let your elected officials know how much you appreciate your pharmacist.
By changing the compensation structure allowed under Medicare, we can ensure that patients have access to the medication expertise of pharmacists. Studies have shown that when a pharmacist is directly involved in patient care, patients have fewer adverse drug reactions, experience improved outcomes, and healthcare costs are reduced.
