SCPC’s strength is in the people who make up America’s LTC pharmacy community. In order to serve patients with high-quality care, SCPC connects our members to their representatives in Congress and key administration officials. These grassroots efforts drive important conversations with our nation’s leaders and decision makers regarding the LTC pharmacy sector.
Please see below for a link to engage in our current advocacy campaigns and help us make a difference on important public policy issues impacting our community.
CMS Nursing Home Staffing Mandate
The Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition joins the American Health Care Association (AHCA) and many others in the long-term care sector and broader healthcare industry in urging the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to reconsider its proposal for a nationwide, one-size-fits-all nursing home staffing mandate.
PBM Reform is a crucial issue for our industry and the patients we serve every day. Congress must enact legislation that requires transparency and accountability in the way PBMs conduct their business. For far too long, we have seen PBMs engage in unfair and abusive practices that delay access to medication for our patients, increase costs for consumers and businesses, and threaten both independent LTC and retail pharmacies.
Federal Definition of LTC Pharmacy
The Long-Term Care Pharmacy Definition Act of 2021 (S. 1574) was introduced in May in the United States Senate. This important legislation would establish a clear statutory definition of LTC pharmacies, which would be a tremendous benefit to the LTC pharmacy community.
Please help us get other Senators to join our cause by participating in the Voter Voice advocacy campaign below.
