Michigan Pharmacists Association (MPA) has been working tirelessly with the Governor’s office on concerns our members have brought to us. Last night the Governor released Executive Order 2020-25 in response to our communication with her and her administration. MPA was not made aware of the documentation requirements prior to the release of this order. We recognize there’s additional improvements to request however, we are pleased that the Governor listened to MPA and Michigan pharmacy leaders to enact this order in a timely fashion. MPA will continue to advocate on behalf of the profession. In accordance to Executive Order 2020-25, pharmacists are authorized to:
The Executive Order also recognizes pharmacies and wholesalers holding a license in good standing in another state as being licensed in Michigan. In addition, the Executive Order mandates prescription coverage on emergency refills from all insurers and health maintenance organizations. It also requires for early refills of all maintenance medications to allow for up to a 90-day supply to be dispensed by a pharmacy.
Executive Order 2020-25 is in effect until April 22 at 11:59 p.m.
