Summary as introduced:
Health professions; dispensing of emergency contraceptives. Establishes procedures by which a physician, in accordance with a protocol developed by the Board of Medicine, may authorize a licensed pharmacist to dispense emergency contraception to women. Pharmacists may dispense such emergency contraception according to regulations adopted by the Board of Pharmacy. This is similar to current law that allows a practitioner to permit pharmacies to dispense immunizations even to persons who are not patients of the physician who initiates the authorization. The bill also provides that nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and physicians may dispense emergency contraceptives at any time according to procedures developed by the Board. The bill also contains technical amendments.
