THERE IS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Join Missouri Pharmacy Association
MPA advocates for you. What have we accomplished?
Securing financial reimbursements for pharmacists. MPA worked with the legislature and other health care professions to push opportunities to enhance the role of the pharmacist by expanding the pharmacy practice act. Pharmacists now have the opportunity to develop a collaborative practice agreement with physicians to independently provide immunizations and other health care services to Missouri patients.
Solidifying pharmacist reimbursement. By working with the legislature MPA helped create programs that expand services to patients while at the same time providing creative new funding sources for Missouri. As a result, patients, taxpayers, and pharmacists are all winners.
MPA keeps you in the know on issues that matter. What issues?
Health care is a hot topic and issues touch pharmacists. The Affordable Care Act forces new reimbursement models and will require pharmacists to be recognized as health care providers in order to participate and be reimbursed for services. MPA is tracking every change impacting pharmacists and provides alerts on current status.
MPA supports practice-based research initiatives and innovative pharmacy practice activities. MPA members will be up-to-date on grants and programs supported by MPA that foster activity on topics like pharmacist administered immunizations, medication therapy management and practice advancement programs.
We listen to member needs, take the MPA voice to every table where pharmacy services are discussed, and keep members informed on trends and activities impacting Missouri pharmacists.
What are MPA financial benefits?
