DIR Fee Relief Has Gained Major Momentum in Congress
In response to the lack of address by last month's CMS ruling, Congress has stepped up to the plate on DIR fee reform. Following closely on the heels of a DIR fee relief letter signed by a quarter of the Senate, members of the House of Representatives were asked to support a congressional sign-on letter authored by Representatives Peter Welch (D-VT), Buddy Carter (R-GA), Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX), and Morgan Griffith (R-VA) to also ask the Trump Administration to enact pharmacy DIR fee relief this year.
PUTT members and social media followers sent almost 1000 letters over a period of 3 days to their respective representatives requesting support of this action, in addition to PUTT's official request (included below). Thank you to everyone who spoke out in support of this important initiative to protect American seniors, families, patients, and community pharmacies!
