Part 7. Out-of-State Mail Service Pharmacies

Legislative Declaration

37-7-701. Legislative declaration. The legislature recognizes that with the proliferation of alternate methods of health care delivery, there has arisen among third-party payors and insurance companies the desire to control the cost and use of pharmacy services through a variety of mechanisms, including the use of mail service pharmacies located outside this state. As a result, the legislature finds and declares that to continue to protect the consumer-patients of this state, all out-of-state mail service pharmacies that provide services to this state's residents must be registered with the board, shall disclose specific information about their services, shall meet the same standards for utilization of technicians as an in-state pharmacy, and shall provide pharmacy services at a high level of competence.
