CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2015–2016 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill No. 1230


Introduced by Senator Stone

February 18, 2016


An act to add Section 4126.7 to the Business and Professions Code, relating to pharmacies.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1230, as introduced, Stone. Pharmacies: compounding.
Under the Pharmacy Law, a violation of which is a crime, the California State Board of Pharmacy licenses and regulates the practice of pharmacy. That law authorizes a pharmacy to furnish prescription drugs only to certain entities, including specific health care entities, and individual patients either pursuant to prescription or as otherwise authorized by law.
This bill would authorize a pharmacy that provides compounding services to provide to a clinic commercial products that are unique or otherwise unavailable to the clinic, if the compounding pharmacy and the clinic have entered into a professional compounding services agreement to provide nonpatient-specific compounded medications that cannot be planned for prospectively. The bill would require the board to adopt regulations for establishing a professional compounding services agreement.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 4126.7 is added to the Business and Professions Code, to read:

4126.7.
 (a) A pharmacy that provides compounding services may provide to a clinic commercial products that are unique or otherwise unavailable to the clinic, if the compounding pharmacy and the clinic have entered into a professional compounding services agreement, that complies with regulation adopted pursuant to subdivision (b), to provide nonpatient-specific compounded medications that cannot be planned for prospectively.
(b) The board shall adopt regulations for establishing a professional compounding services agreement.
