House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: July 22, 2021 11:49 AM
From: Representative Dawn W. Keefer
To: All House members
Subject: Coronavirus Infection Medication Act
I will be introducing legislation to allow for the prescribing and dispensing of off-label drugs approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration to treat Coronavirus infections causing respiratory-syndrome-related illnesses.
Specifically, my legislation would allow prescribers to prescribe and require a pharmacist to dispense a therapeutic drug approved by the United States FDA so long as it is in accordance with a prescription drug order and with the patient’s consent. In addition, my legislation will allow for drugs such as hydroxychloroquine sulfate and ivermectin to be used at home or early-stage outpatient or hospital inpatient for individuals who wish to treat coronavirus infections causing respiratory-syndrome-related illnesses.
I hope you will join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.
