Provider Status


A coalition of Pharmacy groups, including ASCP worked to introduce legislation that would allow pharmacists to practice at the top of their license and bill Medicare for services. In the 115th Congress, those bills are H.R. 592, which coincidentally has the same bill number as Provider Status did in the 114th Congress, and S.109. 


The Pharmacy and Medically Underserved Areas Enhancement Act was reintroduced in the Senate as S.109 and the House as H.R. 592. Each bill was introduced early in the legislative session with a large number of cosponsors. Cosponsors for each bill and other official information is available at the following links: H.R.592 and S.109


ASCP is a member of the (The Patient Access to Pharmacists' Care Coalition) PAPCC, which is a coalition of groups dedicated to passing provider status.
