Pharmacy Legislative Day

What is Legislative Day?

Legislative Day is an advocacy event that allows pharmacists and student pharmacists to meet and educate legislators about the value of pharmacists in the world of healthcare. You will learn about the latest legislative issues at the Indiana Statehouse, discuss ways to effectively communicate those issues, hear from the legislators themselves, and have a chance to individually visit the offices of legislators. This program will allow you to learn and become involved in the issues impacting Indiana pharmacy practice. We’ll discuss MAC PBM transparency/consumer price protection, reimbursement for pharmacy services, the opioid epidemic and other critical issues. There are big pharmacy issues this year - pharmacy claw-backs, the opioid epidemic, access to care, provider status and more. We need your help to stand up for pharmacists and patients.
