The bill requires that a pharmacist receive reimbursement under
the medical assistance program for providing services authorized in
statute, which reimbursement must be equivalent to the reimbursement
provided to a physician or advanced practice nurse for the same services
rendered, including services delivered by a pharmacist through
telemedicine. The department of health care policy and financing is

directed to seek any federal authorization necessary to receive federal
matching money for the reimbursements.
Further, the bill allows a pharmacist or pharmacy with authority to
administer extended-release injectable medications for the treatment of
mental health or substance use disorders to seek reimbursement for those
medications under the medical assistance program as either a pharmacy
benefit or as a medical benefit.
