Texas Legislative Update: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Published by Texas Pharmacy Association


Some would say this year’s Texas legislative session focused on more meat-and-potatoes issues for the general electorate. Pharmacy issues at the top of the agenda were no different, with TPA being centered on business issues crippling our industry, like PBM practices and Medicaid reimbursement, and the professional issues needed to advance the practice. Hear directly from TPA’s chief executive officer as she shares how pharmacy fared this legislative session, new laws enacted that will soon affect the day in the life of a pharmacist, and crucial steps to take in continuing the elevation of the profession.

At the completion of this activity, the pharmacists and technicians will be able to:
1. Discuss legislation enacted during the 86th legislative session impacting pharmacy.
2. Identify opportunities for pharmacy as a result of new enacted legislation.
3. Describe the importance of pharmacist and technician involvement in the state legislative process.
4. Explain the importance of ally-building and collaboration with other health professionals and patient groups to advance pharmacy legislation.
