NJ Physicians Can't Open In-Office Pharmacies

A New Jersey court hearing could have implications for thousands of pharmacists and physicians across the state. The Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division, recently upheld the New Jersey Board of Pharmacy’s decision to deny a doctor’s office the opportunity to register, open, and operate its own in-house pharmacy. The decision affirms New Jersey’s “Codey Law,” which prohibits physicians from referring patients to healthcare services where they hold “a significant beneficial interest.” While physicians can open pharmacies in New Jersey, this decision prohibits them in house in order to give independent pharmacies fair competition.

Creation of Risk Reduction Model for Prescription Drug Services

The law resulting from S887 now requires the Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services in the DHS to implement a risk reduction model to prescription drug services under Medicaid. The purpose is to identify and reduce multi-drug interactions risks and adverse drug events, in order to improve adherence and quality of care while reducing the cost of care. The Division must share pharmacy claims data and coordinate services with a network of local community pharmacies throughout the state.
