Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Regulatory Sunset Act. Provides that the Pharmacy Practice Act is repealed on January 1, 2028 (instead of January 1, 2023). Amends the Pharmacy Practice Act. Provides that the individual taxpayer identification number may be used as an unique identifying number in an application for an original license. Provides that a registered pharmacy technician may be delegated to perform any task within the practice of pharmacy if specifically trained for that task except for final prescription verification except where a registered certified pharmacy technician verifies a prescription dispensed by another pharmacy technician using technology-assisted medication verification. Removes a provision that provides that additional licensure rules may provide for a reasonable annual fee, not to exceed $20, to fund the cost of recordkeeping. Provides that if a pharmacy temporarily closes for more than 72 hours, it is the duty of the pharmacist in charge and the owner of such pharmacy to report to the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation within 72 hours of temporary closure. Removes a provision that provides that exhibits shall be certified without cost. Provides that the citation the Department may issue to any licensee for any violation of the Act or the rules shall not exceed $3,000 (instead of $1,000). Makes other changes. Some provisions take effect upon becoming law.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
225 ILCS 85/25.10

In the Pharmacy Practice Act, provides that nothing shall prohibit an individual employee licensed as a pharmacist, pharmacy technician, or student pharmacist (rather than only licensed as a pharmacist) from accessing the employer pharmacy's database from a home (rather than a pharmacist's home) or other remote location or pharmacist's home verification (rather than home verification) for the purpose of performing certain prescription processing functions, provided that the pharmacy establishes controls to protect the privacy and security of confidential records.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Corrects a typographical error.
