The article reports on the statement of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) on the uncertainty of the pharmacy provisions in the health care reform. The White House proposes to comprehensively reform the health care, but the summary does not mention pharmacist-provided medication therapy management (MTM) services or pharmacists involvement in medical home model of care. It states that ASHP could pursue its legislative priorities if no reform will be passed in 2010.
