    After four years, Oregon State Governor, Kate Brown, passed HB 2028—permitting insurance carriers to add pharmacists to its network of providers and expand collaborative drug therapy management.

    California and Washington State passed similar laws to recognize the value of pharmacists on the health care team, and efforts to pass federal legislation.

    Patients will have access to the specialized care services pharmacists provide including medication management, disease prevention, wellness, and post-diagnostic disease management. Doctors and Pharmacists will now be able to collaborate to design agreement to increase access to pharmacists’ patient care services and improve patients’ health.
