NCPA joined by more than 100 health organizations lobbying against DIRs
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — All told, as many as 118 healthcare organizations have signed letters supporting legislation that would prohibit retroactive pharmacy direct and indirect remuneration (DIR) fees in the Medicare Part D program.
The support is up significantly from last year, when more than 95 health care organizations signaled their support in similar letters to the House and Senate last September.
That demonstration of support was assembled by the National Community Pharmacists Association on Wednesday. Signatories to the letters also include groups representing drug wholesalers, pharmacy buying groups, grocery stores, retailers and major health care systems.
