Fight for your profession at the Pharmacist Legislative Day!

"If you're not at the table, you're on the menu."


We're not taking our foot off the gas. OPA is currently pursuing a number of legislative advancements, and we need your voice to help move the profession forward! Join us on November 14 for the OPA Pharmacist Legislative Day!

There are big pharmacy issues this year: Medicaid reimbursement reform, pharmacy clawbacks, the opioid epidemic, access to care, provider status, and more! We need your help to stand up for pharmacists!

Legislative Day is an advocacy event that allows pharmacists and student pharmacists to meet with legislators to educate them about the value of pharmacists in the world of health care. You will learn about the latest legislative issues in the Ohio Statehouse, discuss ways to effectively communicate those issues, hear from the legislators themselves, and have a chance to individually visit the offices of legislators. This program will allow you to learn and become involved in the issues impacting Ohio pharmacy practice. We’ll discuss pharmacy clawbacks, the opioid epidemic, access to care, provider status, and other critical issues.

The Ohio Pharmacists Association and the Ohio Society of Health-System Pharmacists have joined together for this special advocacy day to inform you of crucial legislation impacting pharmacy practice. Pharmacist Legislative Day is designed to develop open dialogue between pharmacists and lawmakers. Be a part of the important process that will shape our profession.

Support the Legislative Defense Fund

The OPA Legislative Defense Fund (LDF) was created in 2014 at the request of an independent pharmacy owner seeking to help OPA boost its advocacy efforts for pharmacists.

Unlike a Political Action Committee (PAC) fund, where personal funds are given directly to political campaigns, both personal and corporate funds are accepted by the LDF to enhance our government affairs endeavors, and there are no limits on the amount you can give. Contributions from corporate funds may be tax deductible as a business expense. For more info please see the OPA Legislative Defense Fund Brochure.

Complete the OPA Legislative Defense Fund Donation Form to sign up to make a monthly contribution to our advocacy efforts. Choose the giving level that best suits you, and then fill in your billing information. OPA will bill your account in the middle of each month, and you will receive a receipt at the end of the year for reporting. Then it’s our job to put that money to good use.
