Rule making related to collaborative pharmacy practice

The Board of Medicine hereby amends Chapter 13, "Standards of Practice and Principles of Medical Ethics," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is adopted under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 147.76.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code section 155A.48.

Purpose and Summary

2021 Iowa Acts, Senate File 296, added a new section codified as Iowa Code section 155A.48, which provides a definition of "collaborative pharmacy practice" and establishes standards for collaborative pharmacy practice agreements. Subsequent to the enactment of 2021 Iowa Acts, Senate File 296, the Board of Pharmacy adopted new rule 657—39.13(155A) relating to collaborative pharmacy practice (see ARC 6174C, IAB 2/9/22). Because of the adoption of that rule, the Board of Medicine's rules regulating collaborative pharmacy practice are now in conflict with the Board of Pharmacy's rules. Therefore, on February 17, 2022, the Board of Medicine voted to rescind rule 653—13.4(148), and that rescission is adopted in this rule making.
