VSHP participates in ASHP Comments to CMS Regarding Scope of Practice
ASHP, in collaboration with other national pharmacy groups and their affiliates including VSHP, has submitted extensive recommendations to CMS regarding the elimination of regulations that limit pharmacists from practicing at the top of their license. CMS requested additional input and recommendations under the Oct. 3, 2019, Executive Order “Protecting and Improving Medicare for Our Nation’s Seniors.”
VSHP Legislative Day-Wednesday, January 22, 2020
Please join us for Legislative Day in Richmond on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 in collaboration with the Virginia Pharmacists Association. To further our commitment as one profession, one voice, we will be attending legislator meetings together with our VPhA colleagues.
This year, it will be even more important to let your voice be heard. We are pursuing joint legislation on pharmacy technician practice advancement, as well as supporting our VPhA colleagues with fair reimbursement initiatives as well as advanced pharmacist practice.
The Legislative Day will begin with an overview of legislative topics and bills supported by both VPhA and VSHP, followed by legislator appointments. There will be a joint lunch at noon. Plan for activities from 7AM to 2PM.
Please complete the registration form by Friday, January 18. This will allow us enough time to schedule appointments with your legislators.
NOTE: The registration form is on the VPhA website. Also, this registration form is for both pharmacists, technicians, and student pharmacists.
