Unused Medications Program


The Utilization of Unused Medications Act (KSA 65-1668 through 1675) was passed by the Kansas legislature in 2008 to allow the donation of unused medications by adult care homes, mail service pharmacies, and medical care facilities to Federally Qualified Health Centers, indigent health care clinics, and community mental health centers.

In the 2011 session, the Unused Medications Act was amended to allow the donation of medications by mail-order pharmacies licensed in Kansas but not located in the state.

The Kansas State Board of Pharmacy has developed the Unused Medications Program regulations (KAR 68-18-1 through 3).  To participate in the program, a donating or receiving entity must register with the Board of Pharmacy.  Relevant statutes, regulations, forms, and a list of approved donating and receiving entities are available on at the Kansas State Board of Pharmacy website.

The Unused Medications Repository, administered by Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas, provides donated medications free of charge to eligible clinics in Kansas.
