According to the Massachusetts Pharmacists Association, bill HB 2041 would recognize pharmacists as health care providers. On April 9, pharmacists and pharmacy students gathered in Boston to advocate for HB 2041.
If the legislation passes this proposed bill it would allow pharmacists to bill MassHealth and the plans offered by the Group Insurance Commission for “drug therapy management services” to chronic disease patients when acting under the authority of a signed collaborative drug therapy management (CDTM) agreement with a physician. This bill would eliminate the list of disease states eligible for a CDTM agreement to allow pharmacists and physicians to team up on any disease that the physician requests.
