NCPA comments on proposed regs for pharmacists’ contraceptive authority in Connecticut

NCPA November 28, 2023

Earlier this month, NCPA submitted a letter to the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection in favor of proposed regulations that create the educational and patient assessment standards for pharmacists prescribing emergency and hormonal contraception. We were proud to join with the Connecticut Pharmacists Association in their efforts to expand pharmacists’ prescriptive authority, with the Constitution State joining 23 other states in granting access to contraception through community pharmacies. These regulations are pursuant to the signed bill (now law) H.B. 6768, which grants Connecticut pharmacists the ability to prescribe and administer FDA-approved hormonal and emergency contraception without a prescription.
