After Stacie Heller kicked off the session highlighting major policy victories over the past 12 months, including the Part B Demo withdrawal and CVS Caremark’s in-office dispensing exclusion reversal, Rep. Collins delivered an impassioned address about the harmful effects of DIR fees and other PBM practices on community providers’ ability to deliver high-quality, patient-centric care. The panel delved into other issues affecting community-based care, including sequestration, the distributor prompt pay discount inclusion in Part B reimbursement, Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) implementation, and the 340B Drug Pricing Program.
