Test & Treat Toolkit

On July 1, 2021, all pharmacies across the state of Iowa became eligible to provide test and treat services for individuals six years of age and older. Along with testing for influenza, strep, and COVID-19, pharmacies can now prescribe treatment following a positive test result as outlined in the statewide protocols.

Version 2.0 now available!

IPA has developed a toolkit of resources to assist your pharmacy in implementing test & treat services. Recent updates include new Informational Letters from IME, changes to the COVID-19 section with the expiration of Iowa’s Public Health Disaster Emergency Proclamation, and link corrections.

The toolkit will continue to be updated as needed and includes:

  • Point-of-care (POC) testing FAQ
  • CLIA waiver instructions
  • Education requirements
  • Billing information
  • Statewide protocols
  • Sample screening evaluations
  • Sample follow-up documentation
  • And MORE!

IPA’s Test & Treat Toolkit is a FREE member benefit for ENGAGED Pharmacist, Associate, Platinum Business Partner, and Technician members. The toolkit is available for purchase in the IPA Store for INFORMED and CONNECTED Pharmacist members ($150) and non-members ($200).
