Fruth Pharmacy President and Chairman Lynne Fruth, a member of the NACDS Board of Directors, is pictured here with Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) at a previous NACDS RxIMPACT Day on Capitol Hill. Capito is a lead sponsor of S. 640, the Phair Pricing Act, which would help provide DIR fee relief.
NACDS RxIMPACT’s largest grassroots initiative ever is mobilizing pharmacy advocates to engage directly with their U.S. Senators and Representatives to build support for the NACDS-backed Phair Pricing Act (H.R. 1034/S. 640). The bill would do what a recent Medicare rule left undone: provide relief from abusive pharmacy direct and indirect remuneration (DIR) fees. The goal is to assure this is part of a drug-pricing bill that is enacted soon.
Since the NACDS RxIMPACT Action Alert went live, pharmacy advocates have sent more than 4,700 letters to U.S. Senators and House members to urge DIR fee relief.
