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.

IPA has developed a toolkit of resources to assist your pharmacy in implementing test & treat services. The toolkit will be updated as need 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).
