NCPA's LTC Division: Your Resource & Advocate for Long-Term Care Pharmacy

Why Advance LTC Services in Your Community?

Currently, more than 10,000 "boomers" are turning 65 every day, and it is projected that by 2020 the number of Americans age 65 or older needing long-term care services will be 12 million. What does this growing LTC market mean for pharmacy owners? Opportunity.

Most insurers reimburse pharmacies—whether closed-door or not—a higher dispensing fee when providing LTC compliance packaging. In addition, there are no direct or indirect remuneration (DIR) clawbacks when dispensing to an LTC facility.

If you provide prescriptions for residents in group homes, adult day care centers, continuing care retirement communities, residential care homes, assisted living centers (ALF), or hospice facilities, it makes business sense for you to belong to NCPA's LTC Division.

LTC Division members have exclusive access to:

  • Business resources such as sample LTC/ALF consultant pharmacist provider services agreements.

  • Tips on how to acquire new business and create your personalized LTC marketing plan.

  • NCPA LTC experts to guide you through the first steps in opening a "closed door" LTC pharmacy.

  • Monthly newsletter providing timely updates on legislative and regulatory issues such as LTC nurse-as-agent; fair and reasonable reimbursement; MAC pricing, provider status; and much more.

  • Special networking opportunities at events like the NCPA Annual Convention.
