Letter asks justification for proposed Massachusetts fee increase

The Massachusetts Board of Registration in Pharmacy held a hearing February 28 on proposed new fees for pharmacy licenses in the state. The proposal would establish non-resident pharmacy license fees and increase resident pharmacy license fees significantly—well beyond other states’ fees— particularly for non-sterile and sterile compounding. APC submitted a letter this week expressing concern and asking the board to clarify and provide justification for the proposed changes.
