ABC Backed Organization Calls for Clarity Around Definition of Long-Term Care Pharmacy

Sep 27, 2016

The Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition (SCPC), which represents the legislative and regulatory interests of independent long-term care (LTC) pharmacies and to which AmerisourceBergen is a member of, released a white paper stating the need for a federal statutory definition around LTC pharmacy.  The white paper comes as federal agencies continue to release regulations that rely on conflicting definitions of LTC pharmacy, resulting in challenges in compliance and – more concerning – affecting patient care.  A federal definition would create more certainty for LTC pharmacies and help ensure their ability to provide quality services to patients in long-term care settings.

The white paper can be found here on SCPC's website.
