Allows a physician or advanced practice registered nurse to create a standing order that allows a pharmacist to dispense ivermectin. Provides that a prescription dispensed under a standing order is considered to be issued for a legitimate medical purpose in the usual course of professional practice. Prohibits a: (1) physician or advanced practice registered nurse who issues; or (2) pharmacist or pharmacy that follows; a standing order from seeking or receiving certain personal financial benefits. Requires a pharmacist to provide each recipient of ivermectin under a standing order with a standardized information sheet that includes certain information. Prohibits the information sheet from containing information discouraging the recipient from using ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19. Prohibits the medical licensing board of Indiana, Indiana state board of nursing, or the Indiana board of pharmacy from disciplining a physician, advanced practice registered nurse, or pharmacist for certain failures in following a standing order or a defect in the standing order.
