Bill Could Improve Access to Birth Control by Allowing Pharmacists to Prescribe

SB 0628, the "Pharmacy Access Act," has passed unanimously through the Senate and now awaits response from the House. This Act will be instrumental for expanding access to hormonal contraceptives to women in South Carolina by allowing pharmacists to both prescribe and dispense birth control. Especially in rural areas, many women have limited access to physicians and may have trouble getting transportation to see their doctor. Overall, it reduces unnecessary steps for everyone to get a medication that is safe and effective.
