House Committee Substitute

HCS/SB 514 - Under this act, persons who reside in Missouri, are at least 18 years of age and under 26, and who have received foster care for at least six months in another state shall be eligible for MO HealthNet benefits.

This provision is identical to a provision in SS/SCS/HCS/HB 397 (2019), as amended, and SS#2/HB 219 (2019).

Under this act, the practice of pharmacy includes the dispensing of self-administered oral hormonal contraceptives.

A pharmacist is permitted to dispense self-administered oral contraceptives to any person age 18 or older with a prescription. A prescription order for an oral contraceptive shall have no expiration date.

A pharmacist is required to complete an approved training program related to prescribing contraceptives; provide a self-screening risk assessment tool that patients will use prior to the pharmacist's prescription; refer the patient to a primary care practitioner at least every year; provide a written record of the prescription dispensed, and advise the patient to consult with a physician; and dispense such contraceptive as soon as practicable.

The provisions of the act will terminate upon the enactment of any laws allowing the provision of contraceptives from a pharmacist without a prescription. The act does not authorize a pharmacist to make a therapeutic substitution of a pharmaceutical prescribed by a physician unless authorized.

These provision is similar to HB 1498 (2018) and HB 233 (2017).
