Community Pharmacists Endorse Bipartisan Pharmacy Competition and Consumer Choice Act
Date:5/24/2011

changes in drug costs and keep pharmacies whole.
  • Allow oversight for fraud, not abusive pharmacy audits. Legitimate anti-fraud efforts could continue, but pharmacies would not be penalized by commission-driven bounty-hunting auditors over minor typographical or clerical errors.

  • While having some similar provisions to the PBM Audit Reform and Transparency Act of 2010 (H.R. 5234) introduced in the last Congress, the bill's sponsors made some adjustments as well. For example, there is no requirement that pharmacies receive a 15-day notice before an audit and the lawmakers clarified that the "any willing provider" language does not apply to any pharmacy that has been excluded from a federal or state program.

    "We strongly commend Representatives McMorris Rodgers and Weiner for sponsoring this bipartisan bill," Greenwood added. "As we meet in Washington this week for our annual Legislative Conference, local pharmacists will urge all Members of Congress to stand up for patients and small business by supporting this legislation."

    The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA®) represents the interests of America's community pharmacists, including the owners of more than 23,000 independent community pharmacies, pharmacy franchises, and chains. Together they represent a $93 billion health-care marketplace, have more than 315,000 employees including 62,400 pharmacists, and dispense over 41% of all retail prescriptions.
