State Issues

Given the critical role that the individual states have in the implementation of federal healthcare reform and Medicaid expansion, NCPA is expanding its bandwidth and involvement in state legislative and regulatory activity. NCPA state government affairs efforts will be focused on PBM audit reform, MAC generic pricing transparency, Medicaid-related issues and federal healthcare reform implementation (exchanges). In addition, NCPA will be actively supporting efforts to implement and expand pharmacist provider status or securing reimbursement for pharmacist-provided services.
