NCPA provides recommendations to Senate HELP Committee on draft health legislation

by NCPA | Jun 13, 2019

NCPA submitted recommendations to the Senate HELP Committee on the Lower Health Care Costs Act of 2019, bipartisan discussion draft legislation to reduce health care costs. In its comments, NCPA supported provisions that would create PBM reporting requirements and provided examples on how that could work. Moreover, NCPA generally supported language that would prohibit spread pricing by PBMs, but cautioned more safeguards were required to prevent pharmacy clawbacks. The HELP Committee is expected to mark-up the final bill at the end of June.
