08/10/2020 ACTION ALERT (US): Urge Congressional Action to Fully Utilize Pharmacists in COVID-19 Legislation!
NACDS RxIMPACT is calling on you to tell your Members of Congress to include emergency pharmacist provider status legislation in the next COVID-19 response measure and pass this legislation to ensure that pharmacists can more fully respond to the pandemic.

As congressional leaders negotiate another – and possibly final – COVID-19 response measure, it is more important than ever that pharmacy advocates engage Congress in our effort to secure emergency provider status for pharmacists. Help us inspire members of Congress to tell their colleagues in leadership positions to incorporate emergency pharmacist provider status language in the final package!

House Energy & Commerce Health Subcommittee Member Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) has developed a legislative proposal to establish pharmacist provider status, on an emergency basis, so that pharmacists may offer the full spectrum of COVID-19 services that they are qualified to provide as well as additional services, connected to influenza and other respiratory ailments. This is particularly important to ensure that pharmacies and pharmacists are fully incorporated into the deployment strategy for COVID-19 and influenza vaccines when they are available. Simply type in your name and address and click "send message" and our online letter-writing system will generate separate messages to the House and Senate.
Our profession, our industry, and our patients are depending on you. If you have any questions about this communication, please contact Heidi Ecker, NACDS Senior Director of Government Affairs and Political Engagement via email at Hecker@nacds.org or phone at 703/837-4121.
