Kentucky Proposes First Out-of-State Pharmacist License

During its August 31 meeting, the Kentucky Board of Pharmacy voted to move forward with proposed amendments to 201 KAR 2:030. The proposed amendments would create a new non-resident pharmacist license for pharmacists located outside of Kentucky. This new individual licensure category would provide better jurisdiction over non-resident pharmacists providing pharmacy services on prescriptions intended for Kentucky residents. The non-resident pharmacist license would not permit holders of the license to physically practice pharmacy within the Kentucky border, nor would it allow them to serve as a pharmacist-in-charge for Kentucky residents.

Kentucky Makes Changes for Out-of-State Pharmacists

In the past, pharmacists could practice in any state — no matter where they got their license. But many states have aimed to change that rule, and Kentucky may be next. The Kentucky Board of Pharmacy is currently considering new rules for pharmacists from out of state who want to practice in Kentucky. Among the proposed rules is a requirement for all out-of-state pharmacists who “engage in the practice of the profession of pharmacy for a Kentucky resident” to hold an active Kentucky pharmacist license. The rule aims to ensure that all pharmacists practicing in the state meet the same requirements and complete the same training. The Regulation Committee of the Kentucky Board of Pharmacy is currently researching and reviewing the rule.

Increasing Reimbursement for Services Performed by Kentucky Pharmacists

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.
