IACP's Legal Defense Fund

IACP's Legal Defense Fund Details » Donate Online



The IACP Legal Defense Fund is a special account which the IACP Board of Directors uses to support court challenges that defend and protect the compounding pharmacy community at-large.  In just the past year, the IACP Legal Defense Fund enabled our Academy to submit amicus briefs to the Texas Supreme Court in an ongoing challenge to whether office-use compounding and dispensing is part of pharmacy practice as well as to fight against an attempt by a major third-party payer to terminate the coverage of all compounded preparations.

 

With the enactment of the Drug Quality & Security Act (DQSA) and the subsequent statements by the Food and Drug Administration regarding their perceived authority over the traditional regulation of pharmacy practice by the states, IACP anticipates there will be multiple court challenges in the coming years.  With pharmacists uncertain about “who is in charge?” and the potential impact of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which may dictate or even eliminate the ability of our members to engage in lawful interstate commerce, the IACP Legal Defense Fund is one of the most important “savings accounts” for the Academy.

 

When you donate to the IACP Legal Defense Fund, you’ll know that your contributions will be carefully stewarded by the Board and used only in those instances where the eventual outcome of a case has ramifications on all compounders.
