Mississippi Might on TRICARE

NCPA greatly appreciates that after meeting with Mississippi Independent Pharmacies Association owners, Rep. Steven Palazzo (R-Miss.) offered a key amendment on TRICARE legislation that the committee adopted. It would require the Department of Defense to study the effects of offering incentives for mail order pharmacy use on community pharmacies.

NCPA and NACDS are continuing to urge DoD and Congress to promote the use of lower cost generic drugs at neighborhood pharmacies, instead of tilting the playing field to mail order with its spread pricing and secret deals to promote costly brand name drugs.
