Scope of Practice and Compensation for Services

Community pharmacists are both medication experts and America's most accessible health care providers. The services they can provide to their patients and communities extend far beyond dispensing, but current laws and regulations can create barriers to those services. NCPA is committed to working with our members and state partners to remove the barriers preventing pharmacists from practicing to the full scope of their training and expertise.

While certainly not a comprehensive list, the following are areas where NCPA is active related to expansion of pharmacists’' scope of practice and insurance coverage or compensation for pharmacists' patient care services.

  • Immunizations
  • Hormonal Contraceptives
  • Tobacco Cessation
  • Point-of-Care Testing
  • Long Acting Injectables/Medication Administration
