Pharmacists Provide Care is APhA's national advocacy campaign to achieve "provider status," which will allow pharmacists to be recognized as health care providers under the law.

Clinical Programs for Patient Care by Pharmacists 

Pharmacists are often considered the most accessible health care providers and are thus provided with a unique opportunity to have an effect on our patient’s health outcomes. As the scope of pharmacy practice continues to head in a more clinical direction, our unique cognitive services are beginning to be recognized for how valuable they really can be. Across the nation, pharmacies are implementing programs that allow pharmacists to be reimbursed for a specific type of counseling or intervention that they are able to provide.
