w.ncpanet.org/index.php/news-releases/995-at-capitol-hill-rally-community-pharmacists-announce-support-for-bipartisan-senate-bill-to-bolster-consumer-choice-and-pharmacy-competition-">The Pharmacy Competition and Consumer Choice Act of 2011, and H.R. 1946, The Preserving Our Hometown Independent Pharmacies Act. These bills would significantly boost the patient's choice of pharmacy while effectively curbing questionable PBM business practices that drive up health care costs."

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. Together they represent a $93 billion health care marketplace, dispense nearly 40% of all retail prescriptions, and employ more than 315,000 people, including 62,400 pharmacists.  Independent community pharmacists are readily accessible medication experts who can help lower health care spending. They are committed to maximizing the appropriate use of lower-cost generic drugs and reducing the estimated $290 billion that is wasted annually by improper medication use.
