Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Prescription Drug Repository Program Act. Requires the Department of Public Health to, by rule, establish a prescription drug repository program, under which any person may donate a prescription drug or supplies needed to administer a prescription drug for use by an individual who meets eligibility criteria specified by the Department. Sets forth requirements that prescription drugs or supplies must meet in order to be accepted and dispensed under the program. Provides that no drugs or supplies donated under the prescription drug repository program may be resold. Provides that nothing in the Act requires that a pharmacy or pharmacist participate in the prescription drug repository program. Provides for civil and criminal immunity for drug and supply manufacturers and individuals in relation to the donation, acceptance, or dispensing of prescription drugs or supplies under the prescription drug repository program. Imposes conditions on any rulemaking authority. Amends the Pharmacy Practice Act, the Wholesale Drug Distribution Licensing Act, the Senior Pharmaceutical Assistance Act, the Illinois Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, and the Cannabis and Controlled Substances Tort Claims Act to provide that persons engaged in donating or accepting, or packaging, repackaging, or labeling, prescription drugs to the extent permitted or required under the Prescription Drug Repository Program Act are exempt from provisions of those other Acts that might prohibit or otherwise regulate such activity.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Creates the Illinois Drug Reuse Opportunity Program Act. Provides that, notwithstanding any other law or rule, donors may donate drugs to recipients and recipients may receive donated drugs from donors. Provides that recipients shall only dispense or administer drugs to eligible patients, further donate drugs to another recipient, or dispose of drugs in accordance with specified provisions. Provides that drugs donated for use under the Act are considered nonsaleable. Provides that, when dispensing a drugs to an eligible patient, the recipient must do so at no cost to the eligible patient, except that a reasonable handling fee may be charged. Provides that recipients may only dispense or administer a prescription drug or provide an over-the-counter drug if specified requirements are met. Provides that recipients shall, to the greatest extent practicable, dispense drugs received under the Act to priority patients. Provides that drugs may be accepted under the Act only if specified requirements are met. Contains requirements for the further donation of drugs by a recipient. Contains provisions regarding the disposition of specified drugs. Provides that nothing in the Act requires that a pharmacy or pharmacist be a recipient of drugs under the Act. Provides that the Act shall supersede any inconsistent law or rule for activities conducted under the Act. Contains other provisions. Amends the Pharmacy Practice Act, the Wholesale Drug Distribution Licensing Act, the Senior Pharmaceutical Assistance Act, the Illinois Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, the Illinois Controlled Substances Act, and the Cannabis and Controlled Substances Tort Claims Act to provide that persons engaged in donating or accepting, or packaging, repackaging, or labeling, prescription drugs to the extent permitted or required under the Illinois Drug Reuse Opportunity Program Act are exempt from provisions of those other Acts that might prohibit or otherwise regulate such activity.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes. In provisions creating the Prescription Drug Repository Program Act, provides that "prescription drug" does not include a drug for the treatment of cancer that can only be dispensed to a patient registered with the drug manufacturer in accordance with the federal Food and Drug Administration's requirements. Removes language providing that "recipient" includes a prescriber office. Provides that when dispensing a drug to an eligible patient, the recipient must do so at no cost to the eligible patient, except that a uniform reasonable handling fee (rather than a reasonable handling fee) may be charged. Provides that a drug may be accepted under the Act only if, in addition to other requirements, the donor has removed or redacted any patient name and prescription number and any other patient identifying information (rather than removed or redacted any patient name and prescription number) on the drug or otherwise maintains patient confidentiality by executing a confidentiality agreement with the recipient according to all State and federal medical patient privacy laws, rules, or regulations (rather than or otherwise maintains patient confidentiality by executing a confidentiality agreement with the recipient).
