As we approach the end of the comment period on the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed changes to Medicare Part D its even more important to get the word out. These changes would enhance patient choice and access by opening up preferred pharmacy networks to community pharmacies.
We have drafted a template Letter to the Editor that you can submit to your local newspaper. The letter briefly explains the rule changes and the importance of community pharmacists to patients’ healthcare quality. Feel free to also add in any personal anecdotes that are relevant.
You can access our draft letter that includes submission instructions here.
And once again, don’t forget to submit your comments to CMS before March 7th!
