Date:10/7/2009

As the Senate begins the process of reconciling the healthcare reform bills from the Committees on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions' (HELP) and Finance, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) sent a letter to Senate leaders thanking them for their efforts on behalf of pharmacy, and urging them to continue to ensure pro-patient and pro-pharmacy provisions remain in the final legislation.

Alexandria, Va. (Vocus) October 7, 2009 -- As the Senate begins the process of reconciling the healthcare reform bills from the Committees on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions' (HELP) and Finance, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) sent a letter to Senate leaders thanking them for their efforts on behalf of pharmacy, and urging them to continue to ensure pro-patient and pro-pharmacy provisions remain in the final legislation.

"[NACDS shares the goal of reforming the healthcare system to reduce costs, improve quality, and increase access" that "meets the needs of our member companies and the patients they serve."

In the letter, NACDS reiterated its support for a reformed Medicaid reimbursement rate for generic medications that is accurate, and applauded the Senate for incorporating patient - and pharmacy-friendly provisions in the healthcare reform bills, including a modification of onerous Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations on pharmacies which sell durable medical equipment (DME), and support for enhanced access to pharmacist-provided medication therapy management (MTM) services in a number of delivery system reform provisions.
