New Michigan Law Allows Remote Pharmacies
Governor Whitmer has signed a new bill into law that will let remote pharmacies operate in Northern Michigan.
The legislation sponsored by state Sen. Curt Vanderwall will let a pharmacist oversee multiple locations.
They would use real time and audio video feeds to review prescriptions.
These would then be dispensed at the remote location by a pharmacy technician.
Vanderwall says this new law will allow new pharmacies to open in rural areas and increase access for Michigan residents.
