Pharmacies in rural areas are different from those in metropolitan areas. Simply put, the people in rural communities just don’t have the care options that people in bigger cities do. For many, the local pharmacy is their only choice.
Join Jason Ausili, Pharm.D., and special guest Mark McCurdy, RPh, as they discuss the important role pharmacists play in medically underserved areas and how provider status for pharmacists could help millions of people get much-needed access to care.
During this webinar, you’ll learn:
- What Role Pharmacies Play in Medical Deserts: Learn what services pharmacists offer when the closest hospital could be hours away.
- How Federal Provider Status Factors In: Discover why provider status recognition is critical for pharmacists in medically underserved communities.
- What Is Being Done to Help: Hear about the legislation on the table that will help support pharmacists in medical deserts and what you can do to promote it.
- How to Bill for Clinical Services: To get paid for the clinical care you provide, you have to bill the medical benefit. Learn what you need to do to get started.
