The deadline for comments on the executive order signed by President Trump on October 17th, "Protecting and strengthening Medicare" was January 17th. The New Hampshire Pharmacists Association joined forces with other state associations in sending a letter to CMS asking for consideration to give pharmacist's provider status to increase their roles in delivering services to improve outcomes. The executive order would allow physician assistants and nurse practitioners to practice "at the top of their licenses" and their was much discussion on whether this might be a way for pharmacist's to acquire provider status without congressional approval. This clearly would be the best solution for pharmacist's nationwide to bill for cognitive services for a variety of MTM and state authorized prescribing of select drugs.b
