NCPA Requests Pharmacists’ Assistance

We have recently received communication from Michael Rule, Associate Director, Public Affairs and Grassroots Advocacy at NCPA. He is requesting input from our pharmacists regarding price increases on generic medications.

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD) are leading a bicameral investigation into price spikes for generic medications to determine the cause of these dramatic price increases and the effect they have on patients. They have requested NCPA assistance in gathering examples from patients and pharmacists in how these price increases have impacted patient care, such as are these price increases forcing patients into the Medicare donut hole sooner or are they forcing patients to forgo their medication altogether. 

Please call or email Michael Tomberlin at 571-882-3308 and  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you have examples you would like to share. 

Thank you.
