Senate bill will allow pharmacists to fill out of state prescriptions
Statewide—Living in the tri-state area and having tri-state medical care can sometimes be a hassle if you have prescriptions that currently can’t be filled in Indiana for physicians’ assistants from another state. State Senator Jean Leising has co-authored a bill to help make this less of a hassle. Senate Bill 21 recently passed 46-3 and will move to the house for a vote. If this bill passes the house, it provides that prescriptions can be filled from out-of-state physician assistants and that a pharmacist has a duty to honor all prescriptions issued by an advanced practice registered nurse or physician assistant if licensed under the laws of another state.
