Rep. James Comer to Speak at NCPA Fly-In
Last week we were delighted to report that Kentucky Congressman James Comer announced, as Chair of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, that he is launching an investigation into harmful PBM practices impacting Federal programs. Well, there's even more good news: Rep. James Comer will be a guest speaker at NCPA's annual Congressional Pharmacy Fly-In. He'll be there to brief us on his committee's PBM investigation. You can't get this kind of access anywhere else or with any other pharmacy group, so please take advantage of it.
Registration is open for the National Community Pharmacists Association's 2023 Congressional Pharmacy Fly-In, April 26-27 in Alexandria, Va., and Washington, D.C. KPhA is urging Kentucky's independent pharmacists to participate in this year's Fly-In and offer our Congressman a good ol' Kentucky welcome!
Through the NCPA Congressional Pharmacy Fly-In, community pharmacists can talk with policymakers about the important role independent pharmacies play in their communities, the many ways pharmacy teams help patients, and the industry's challenges. In addition to helping foster existing relationships, it's an opportunity to build rapport with those new to Congress who are now making decisions central to the future of pharmacy.
Before heading to Capitol Hill, NCPA staff will update attendees on the congressional agenda for 2023 and the association's ongoing advocacy efforts, which include working to stop unfair practices of pharmacy benefit managers and protecting and expanding patient access to community pharmacy services.
