Notice of Rulemaking Activity


Regulatory Project 2018-1 ~ Pharmacy Benefit Managers

The Louisiana Board of Pharmacy has initiated the rulemaking process to adopt a new sub-chapter of rules relative to the licensure and regulation of pharmacy benefit managers.  The proposed rule will require pharmacy benefit managers operating within the state of Louisiana to obtain a pharmacy permit from the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy and to comply with the Board's rules for certain of their activities construed to be within the practice of pharmacy.  The Louisiana Board of Pharmacy has submitted its First Report to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on Health & Welfare.  As indicated in the Notice of Intent scheduled for publication in the May 20, 2018 edition of the Louisiana Register, the Louisiana Board of Pharmacy will conduct a public hearing on June 25, 2018 to receive comments and testimony on the proposed rule.  You can follow the progress of this regulatory project on the Board's website.
