HB 219 was passed and signed by Governor Andy Beshear during the 2021 LegislativeSession, regulating the sale and disposal of hypodermic syringes. Under HB 219, pharmacies will no longer be required to obtain or record identification of a person purchasing hypodermic syringes. Instead, they will be able to sell hypodermic syringes to all patients, given that they meet certain state protocols. The law goes into effect onJune 29, 2021.
HB 48 has been signed into law, expanding reimbursement for pharmacist-conducted services. It requires insurers to reimburse a pharmacist for a service or procedure at a rate no less than that provided to other nonphysician practitioners. It levels the playing field and ensures that pharmacists are getting fair reimbursement for their valuable and accessible clinical services in Kentucky.
