By January 15, 2022, the Maine Board of Pharmacy shall submit a report, including suggested legislation, based on its evaluation to the Joint Standing Committee on Health Coverage, Insurance and Financial Services.
The board shall gather information from pharmacies, including the number of persons who are visually impaired served by that pharmacy, the accommodations currently provided by that pharmacy and any barriers for a pharmacy to provide accommodations requested by a person who is visually impaired.
