IACP Joins PAPCC Effort
Share |

IACP has joined an organization, The Patient Access to Pharmacists' Care Coalition (PAPCC), which is working to develop and help enact a federal policy proposal that would increase patient access to pharmacists' patient care services. The legislative proposal will seek to amend Medicare law to cover and pay for pharmacists' services for some of our most vulnerable patients ― those in medically underserved communities.

 

When pharmacists are included on patients' healthcare teams, the quality of care increases and outcomes improve. IACP is pleased to be part of a pharmacy coalition that is united in an effort to earn pharmacists the recognition they deserve.

 

Current members of PAPCC include:

 

•    Albertson's
•    American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP)
•    American Pharmacists Association (APhA)
•    American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP)
•    American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)
•    Amerisource Bergen
•    Bi-Lo Pharmacy
•    Cardinal Health
•    CVS Caremark
•    Food Marketing Institute (FMI)
•    Fred's Pharmacy
•    Fruth Pharmacy
•    International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP)
•    National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations (NASPA)
•    National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS)
•    National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA)
•    Rite Aid
•    Safeway Inc.
•    SuperValu Pharmacies
•    Thrifty White Pharmacy
•    Walgreens
•    Winn-Dixie

  

This multi-organizational effort will push for recognition of pharmacists as valued members of the healthcare team under the law. IACP will report PAPCC updates as they are available.
