Before you buy COVID-19 tests, check your readiness to administer #COVID19 testing in your community.
To see if a COVID-19 test (diagnostic or antibody) has an EUA from the FDA, visit https://ncpa.org/covid-testing#which-tests. Look for the ‘W’ in the Authorized Setting column. (See photo 2.)

Most pharmacies will need a CLIA certificate of waiver to conduct the tests. Watch this short video on how to apply for one today: http://www.ncpa.co/media/webinar/Fill-Out-CLIA-FORM.mp4

Efforts to ramp up #COVID19 testing nationwide continue but due to recent destruction and looting, scores of testing sites have been forced to close. Grubb's Pharmacy, one of the nation's oldest pharmacies and a part of a federal program of free coronavirus tests focusing largely on socially vulnerable neighborhoods, shared its experience with the Washington Post.

The District’s only three pharmacies in a federal coronavirus testing program have all been vandalized; two are not reopening for tests.

As More Seniors Turn to At-Home Care, CMS Must Recognize Medical At-Home Pharmacy Services

In Pharmacy Times, NCPA CEO Douglas Hoey advocates for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to recognize medical at home pharmacy services. Seniors' demand for at-home care was on the rise before the deadly #COVID19 outbreaks in nursing facilities, a trend likely to continue beyond the pandemic. Hoey says formally recognizing these services will help promote value-based patient care and increased savings to the health care system.

Nearly half of community pharmacies offer long-term care services and play a critical role in ensuring patients have immediate access to medications in long-term care settings.

I'm excited and humbled to announce my candidacy for the Texas House. It's time to put good people in public office. Send me to Austin so I can expose the corrupt insurance companies and PBMs that are increasing prescription drug prices and running independent pharmacies out of business. It's time for pharmacists and pharmacy owners to stop complaining about PBMS and DIRs and actually do something about it. This is our opportunity. Let's send a message to Austin that conservative millennials are no longer on the sidelines. We're here, and it's our turn.
