NCPA Announces New Division Dedicated to Long-Term Care Pharmacies, Patients
Date:10/4/2010

LTC advocacy efforts including: providing a community pharmacy perspective to CMS on the potential impacts of proposed short-cycle dispensing rules; working to find a compromise on the LTC nurse-as-agent issue that ensures patients get needed medications in a timely manner; and submitting recommendations to ensure the smooth implementation of e-prescribing rules in LTC settings.

In addition, the association is closely monitoring other matters impacting LTC pharmacies such as Medicare Part B DME MAC recoupment efforts to help ensure that any government actions to resolve pending financial matters find their intended targets (Medicare Advantage and Home Health Agencies in this case), and not independent community pharmacies.

For more information and to sign up for timely regulatory and compliance updates and other benefits, interested pharmacists can visit the new LTC website, www.ncpaltc.org. During this initial "preview" period, access to the site will be unrestricted but afterward only those who've signed up as members of the NCPA LTC Division will have access to the content and NCPA experts.

Janeczko will be on hand at NCPA's 112th Annual Convention and Trade Exposition in Philadelphia, PA, October 23-27, 2010 to meet, greet and assist independents in signing up for this new division.

The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA®) represents America's community pharmacists, including the owners of more than 22,700 independent community pharmacies, pharmacy franchises, and chains. Together they represent an $88 billion health-care marketplace, employ over 65,000 pharmacists, and dispense over 40% of all retail prescriptions. To learn more go to www.ncpanet.org or read NCPA's blog, The Dose, at
