Will the Florida Board of Pharmacy Be Revamped?

There are possibly many changes in the works regarding pharmacy laws in the state of Florida. Recently, we reported on a new bill that proposes an increase in the ratio of pharmacy technicians to pharmacists. Because of the controversy over this proposed bill, there is another new bill that the Legislature is considering that would change the composition of the board.

Currently, there are nine members that comprise the state’s pharmacy board. The new measure would reduce the number of at-large spots for people with pharmacy licenses from five to one, and it would increase—from one to three—the number of seats for pharmacists who represent both small and large pharmacy chain stores. The bill recommends keeping the two consumer representatives on the board.

Sen. Denise Grimsley, R-Sebring, proposed the new bill that would change the composition of the Board of Pharmacy because some in the pharmaceutical community believe pharmacy representation should be increased for larger and smaller pharmacies. The reason? Many in the pharmacy community feel like the bill that recommended an increase in technicians overseen by a pharmacist from three to six should have been the board’s decision and not the Legislature.

If the new bill passes, it would change the structure of the state’s pharmacy board, which means it could change how pharmacies are governed and how pharmacists are disciplined. If there are more people on the board looking out for large chain pharmacies, it is possible that consumers’ best interests won’t be the focus of the board and more pharmacy mistakes would occur that wouldn’t be disciplined.
