Join our Dog Days of DIR fight

by NCPA | Aug 13, 2019

Congress is in recess until after Labor Day. But NCPA is working, and we're using the Dog Days of August to do a little barking at Congress. We'd like to keep the pressure on Congress, particularly members of the Senate Finance Committee, to address pharmacy DIR fees. Here's how you can help:

  • Submit a letter to the editor of your local newspaper and post it on your personal or pharmacy Facebook pages. NCPA has sample letters you can personalize and submit, and we'll provide you with instructions on how to submit to individual publications.

  • Create a short video message from you to your senators, urging them to address pharmacy DIR fees. A five or 10-second message filmed with your hand-held device would help get your senator's attention. Here's a tip sheet to help you create an effective video. Please email video clips to Michael Rule. You can also email him with questions or to request sample letters to the editor. As always, NCPA can assist you in creating an effective message.
