AmerisourceBergen, along with over 30 organizations, sent a letter to Congressional Committee Chairs and Ranking Members requesting that they take action on legislation that would allow pharmacists to be reimbursed under Medicare Part B for services provided in Medically Underserved Areas. The letter, spearheaded by the Patient Access to Pharmacists' Care Coalition (PAPCC), highlights the need for provider status for pharmacists in that it will provide greater patient access to quality based health care services. The legislation, which has over 290 cosponsors in the House of Representatives and nearly 50 in the Senate, has been stalled in the 114th Congress. AmerisourceBergen is committed to its pharmacy partners and continues to advocate the passage of provider status legislation.
