4 Things To Know About Illinois HB5505


Illinois House Bill 5505: Improving Prescription Label Accessibility 

In a move toward greater inclusivity, Illinois has introduced House Bill 5505, focusing specifically on pharmacy practices and prescription labels. Here are the 4 things you need to know about it:

1. Accessible Prescription Labels

HB 5505 emphasizes that pharmacies must inform patients about the availability of accessible prescription labels. These labels cater to individuals who are blind, visually impaired, or otherwise print-disabled. By providing this service at no extra cost, Illinois aims to ensure that everyone can access vital prescription information.

2. Empowering Patients

The bill recognizes the importance of empowering patients to manage their health effectively. When a person requests an accessible label, the pharmacy must promptly accommodate their needs. This step promotes independence and autonomy for patients with varying abilities.

3. Bridging the Gap

By implementing accessible prescription labels, Illinois bridges the gap between healthcare services and diverse patient populations. Clear, legible information is crucial for medication adherence and safety. HB 5505 takes a significant step toward achieving this goal.

4. Collaboration with Pharmacists

Pharmacists play a pivotal role in this process. They are the frontline professionals who interact directly with patients. HB 5505 encourages collaboration between pharmacists and patients, fostering a healthcare environment that values accessibility and understanding.
