Help Determine TRUE Costs to Dispense
NCPA and its partners have commissioned a new nationwide cost-of-dispensing survey to get a broad view of dispensing costs across the country. If you're a pharmacy owner, you should have received an email on or around January 31 with a link to complete the survey.
Here's a quick rundown on what you need to know:
The research is being conducted by Abt Associates, an independent research organization.
NCPA is sponsoring the survey, along with the National Association of Chain Drug Stores and the National Association of Specialty Pharmacy.
Your responses to this survey will be used to estimate costs of dispensing nationally and in each state. These estimates will be used in advocacy efforts related to achieving fairer reimbursements.
Your data will not be shared with third parties and will only be used in aggregate.
Why should you complete the survey? This is your opportunity to show Medicaid and other payers exactly how much it costs to dispense. The greater the response, the better idea they'll have of the true cost of dispensing.
