Compounders on Capitol Hill Advance Discount Ends at Midnight CST Today, March 31, 2014!

The 20th Annual Compounders on Capitol Hill (CCH) will be held May 17-20, 2014 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Va. Our focus this year is making sure that the FDA appropriately implements the new Drug Quality and Security Act and doesn't overstep the limits that Congress placed on it. IACP has submitted more than 2,400 bulk ingredients to the FDA's request for drugs that we should be able to continue compounding. We are crafting our response to the FDA's declaration on Office-Use and are actively working with our congressional representatives to solve this issue.

Please join IACP at CCH in May and ensure our unified voice is heard! Don't miss the only pharmacy compounding event that takes our issues directly to Washington, D.C.'s doorstep.

SESSION HIGHLIGHT: Mary Jo Carden, RPh, JD and Jonathan E. Levitt, Esq. To Present Managed Care Industry: How Things Have Changed in the Coverage of Compounded Medications

Hear from a diverse line-up of leaders in the pharmacy compounding community. Don't miss Mary Jo Carden, RPh, JD, Director, Regulatory Affairs with the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy and Jonathan E. Levitt, Esq., Founding Partner at Frier Levitt, LLC during Managed Care Industry: How Things Have Changed in the Coverage of Compounded Medications from 3:00-4:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 18, 2014. This program is made possible through an unrestricted educational grant-in-aid from MEDISCA. In this session, attendees will discuss examples of compounded products and determine whether they would or would not be generally acceptable for payment by a commercial or Part D health plan. Attendees will outline steps to improve claim submissions for compounded products. Additionally, attendees will engage in discussion on today's compounding practice, enforcement activities, and identify tomorrow's opportunities.

This session has been approved for 1.0 contact hours (0.10 CEUs) of Live CE. The IACP 2014 Compounders on Capitol Hill has been approved for 14.5 contact hours (1.45 CEUs) and attendees may acquire up to 11.5 contact hours (1.15 CEUs) of continuing education credit.

At the conclusion of this educational session, the pharmacist and technician attendee will be able to:

  • Describe the current environment related to interactions between pharmacy and managed care in regard to compounding payment policy.
  • Explain any future changes that might occur in this area as the result of changes to federal and state laws.
  • Discuss how compounding pharmacists can identify future opportunities in new delivery models including Accountable Care Organizations and Patient Centered Medical Homes.
