Finish the Fight

Welcome to the National Community Pharmacists Association’s Finish the Fight campaign. At this moment, Congress is considering legislation for which we’ve been fighting for a long time. It would mandate that pharmacies are paid a fair and transparent reimbursement for the drugs they dispense in Medicaid managed care programs based on the national average drug acquisition cost (NADAC) and your respective state’s Medicaid fee-for-service dispensing fee, and it would require CMS to define and enforce “reasonable and relevant” Medicare Part D contract terms, as the current terms are not reasonable nor relevant. There is strong bipartisan support in both houses of Congress, and the legislation has advanced farther than ever before. All that’s left for Congress to do is to pass it and send it to the president to sign.

This campaign is aimed at getting it done. Finally.

Fat CatIndependent pharmacists across the country have already made their voices heard. NCPA members sent more than 23,000 letters to Congress this year alone and have engaged their own patients, who have sent more than 6,000 messages supporting robust pharmacy benefit manager reform. With the Finish the Fight campaign, we’re not just mobilizing patients across the country, we’re empowering them to join us in the effort.

Below, you’ll find video, digital, and printable assets that we’ll be serving to pharmacy patients over the next few months. We’re asking them to send letters and make phone calls to their federal representatives to tell them that PBM reform is as important to them as it is to you. You can download the assets to use in your own pharmacies and social media channels as well. Thank you for spreading the word. Please contact [email protected] with questions.

With your help, we will Finish the Fight.
