Bill description: SB 1331 would allow chiropractic physicians to administer certain prescriptions, and also to source compounded prescriptions from a compounding pharmacy.
Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market?
SB 1331 clarifies that it is within the scope of practice for chiropractic physicians who have a clinical nutrition certification to get prescriptions sent to their office and administer them to patients there. The prescriptions would be for products such as vitamins, minerals, fluids, epinephrine, and oxygen. The bill also clarifies that chiropractic physicians can get compounded (i.e., customized) prescriptions from pharmacies equipped to supply such prescriptions.
