New Bill Will Allow Purchasing a Prescription Without Pharmacist Present

Illinois residents have most likely encountered the inconvenience of trying to pick up a prescription but are unable to do so due to a pharmacist not being present.


State Senator Chapin Rose sponsored a bill that would allow retail clerks to sell filled prescriptions to customers when a pharmacist is on a meal break or has left.

Prescriptions will still have to be filled by the pharmacist.



Certain prescriptions such as opioids will still be required to be sold with a pharmacist present. The bill has passed the General Assembly and now awaits the Governor's signature.
