Rx Partnership favors amendment

Rx Partnership, a nonprofit organization working statewide to increase medication access, supports this amendment as proposed in the petition. The change would increase efficiency and ease related to providing prescriptions for individuals who need a convenient location for pick-up that may not necessarily be where the prescription was filled.

We believe this amendment will help encourage more pharmacies to be involved in helping patients receive medications at a preferred location. Many of the low income and uninsured patients Rx Partnership supports experience transportation challenges and being able to receive medication(s) at a preferred pharmacy would greatly improve medication adherence and health outcomes.
