AmerisourceBergen Leaders, Customers Urge Congress to Address Harmful DIR Fees, Part B Reimbursement


On March 16th, Barry Fortner, SVP & President Specialty Physician Services and Lisa Harrison, VP Practice Business Solutions joined Dr. Gary Kay with Northwest Hematology & Oncology on Capitol Hill to brief bipartisan members of Congress on two major issues affecting community oncology, DIR fees and Medicare Part B Reimbursement.  The group met with House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam’ s (R-IL) staff, Dr. Kay’s hometown Congressional Representative, as well as staff from the offices of Reps. Buddy Carter (R-GA) and Billy Long (R-MO), as well as Senators Mark Warner (D-VA) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA).  Barry, Lisa, and Dr. Kay stressed the harmful effects retroactive DIR fees and the flawed Part B prompt pay discount reimbursement error continue to have on high quality, cost-effective, community-based practices.  During the visit, Dr. Kay extended an invitation for Chairman Roskam to visit Northwest Hematology & Oncology to meet Dr. Kay’s dedicated coworkers and staff making a huge difference in patients’ lives every day.  AmerisourceBergen continues to push for practical solutions so community-based practices can focus on treating patients and not have to worry about devastating DIR fees and flawed Part B reimbursement formulas.
