Invest in YOUR Profession and Support the Illinois Pharmacy Advocacy Fund Today!
The lack of provider recognition status, delayed payments cycles, Medicaid reimbursement cuts, proposed changes to compounding practices, lack of support and understanding of pharmacist service reimbursement, and other legislation in the Illinois General Assembly and Congress to regulate pharmacy, all are reasons that our profession is being continually challenged.
Your help is needed to protect and advance the profession of pharmacy in the State of Illinois!
IPhA continues to shape Illinois pharmacy by being active in the rules making process for changes to the Illinois Controlled Substances and Pharmacy Practice Acts. IPhA continues an open dialogue with various state agencies that affect pharmacy, including the Division of Professional Regulation, the Department of Healthcare and Family Services, and the Department of Human Services. IPhA continues to foster relationships with our elected representatives of the General Assembly, to educate about our pharmacy issues and advocate for advancement of the pharmacy profession.
All of this takes resources. Our capable staff is dedicated to preserving and protecting the profession of pharmacy in Illinois. In addition to our existing staff we also retain the services of a lobbyist to help us convey the message of pharmacy to all members of the Illinois General Assembly and those state agencies that impact and regulate pharmacies. Your immediate financial support is needed to help us defray these ongoing expenses. The alternative is to diminish our role and ability to effect changes in the Illinois political process. With your support, we can make advancements in many of these areas, which can be the difference between progression and setbacks for Illinois pharmacy.
We are asking you today to please Help Protect and Advance Illinois Pharmacy by your generous contribution to the Illinois Pharmacy Advocacy Fund! In addition to your financial support, we need pharmacists to become informed and speak to others on behalf of the profession. Lawmakers and regulators must comprehend the role of todays pharmacist in the rapidly changing healthcare system. Please also indicate on the enclosed form your willingness to be an advocate for your profession.
I urge you to send in your generous gift now! I also implore you to stay vigilant on actions of the Illinois General Assembly. We offer a very thorough legislative report that is updated regularly on the IPhA website for the latest developments in legislation that may impact pharmacy. In addition, your generous support will be recognized in a future publication of the Illinois Pharmacist.
