Good Neighbor Pharmacy Supports Reintroduction of DIR Legislation

Mar 12, 2019
Reps. Peter Welch (D-VT) and Morgan Griffith (R-VA) reintroduced H.R. 803, the Improving Transparency and Accuracy in Medicare Part D Drug Spending Act in Congress this week. In the previous Congress, this legislation had 89 bipartisan cosponsors. H.R. 803 would ensure community pharmacists receive reimbursement at the rate posted at the time prescriptions are filled by prohibiting Medicare Part D plan sponsors and PBMs from retroactive DIR fees. Good Neighbor Pharmacy continues to support this legislation again this session.
