Hot Button Legal Issues Facing Pharmacies in the Next 12 Months
May 13 @ 1 PM CDT  |  Jeffrey Baird, Brown & Fortunato

78 million Baby Boomers are retiring at a rate of 10,000 per day. The demand for prescription drugs and related pharmacy services is expected to increase exponentially. Along with increased demand will come increased scrutiny of pharmacies by government regulators, third-party payors, and others. In order to successfully withstand this scrutiny, pharmacies need to be aware of the most important legal issues they will be facing in the upcoming months. This program will discuss these “hot button” issues and the steps that pharmacies should take to navigate them. Among other issues, this program will discuss

  • the imposition by states of excise taxes on opioids;
  • how to fill out PBM re-enrollment questionnaires;
  • how to respond to a PBM audit;
  • the legal requirements to reduce or waive copayments;
  • providing consulting pharmacy services, EHR software, and other products and services to long term care facilities;
  • responding to an FDA inspection; and
  • entering into the CBD space.

May 14  @ 1 PM CDT  |  Nicholas Cox, University of Utah

Given the national “opioid crisis,” the use of rescue outpatient naloxone has increased substantially. However, while the drug is often prescribed or offered, barriers such as cost, access, stigma, complicated administration, pharmacist experience, and the need for education of family and friends has led to substantial underutilization of naloxone dispensing in pharmacies as well as underuse in patients. The purpose of this continuing education presentation is to provide you with an overview of why and how community pharmacies can become more actively engaged in naloxone distribution.
