    How pharmacists can find jobs, get paid, and win provider status

    Pay the employers, and they will get into compliance instantly — and they will start paying the pharmacists in their employ to perform patient consultations.

    Some studies have estimated how much money CMS can save annually when pharmacists do CMRs for Medicare and Medicaid recipients. It amounts to approximately $13 billion dollars per year, every year.

    This would be a win-win situation all the way around. CMS wins, the patients win, the employers win, pharmacists win, and the pharmacists oversupply would be at the very least partly alleviated.
