Summary

The bill requires a pharmacy to provide an individual who has
difficulty seeing or reading standard printed labels on prescription drug
containers with access to the prescription drug label information by:
  • Including an electronic label affixed to the prescription
drug container that transmits the prescription drug's label
information, directions, and written instructions to an end
user's external accessible device, including an individual's
compatible prescription drug reader;
  • Providing a prescription drug reader at no cost to the
individual;
  • Providing a prescription drug label in braille or large print;
or
  • Providing the individual with a method recommended by
the United States access board.
The state pharmacy board may exempt from the requirements of
the bill a pharmacy that is a sole proprietorship with no more than 2
pharmacists for which, upon request of the pharmacy, the board
determines compliance would create an undue burden.
