37.81.1005 MONTANA PHARMASSIST SCOPE AND PURPOSE
(1) Beginning July 15, 2007, Montana residents may request applications for referral to a credentialed pharmacist for review of their medication regimens to address medication cost and the proper and prudent use of their medications. Clients who have applied and whose personal circumstances warrant a referral will be referred to a pharmacist for a drug regimen review and face-to-face interactions to identify therapeutic duplications and possible cost saving alternatives. The pharmacist will schedule and perform a face-to-face consultation and provide recommendations for the client to discuss with their prescriber. Upon completion, the client, their prescribers, and department representatives will receive a letter prepared by the pharmacist outlining the face-to-face discussion. The letter will include the pharmacist's recommendations for the possible alternatives available for the client. Clients are encouraged to discuss the pharmacist's recommendations with their prescribers prior to making any changes.
