This rapid victory came about with the collaborative efforts of the Vermont Pharmacists Association, Vermont Health Systems Pharmacists, Vermont Retail Druggists, and the Albany College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences-Colchester.
Representatives of these groups were on hand along with the Governor, Speaker of the House Smith, Health Commissioner Chen, Sen. Claire Ayer, and others for the signing at the Community Health Center of Burlington.
A bill has been introduced into the Vermont House of Representatives that could help pave the way for pharmacists to be recognized with complete Health Care Provider status in Vermont. H.813 would allow pharmacists to be paid for clinical interventions rather than just dispensing. Follow the link to the draft bill.
