Pharmacist group establishes long-term care division
J & J pays $158 million to settle Texas Medicaid fraud lawsuit
The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) Monday disclosed that it has created a new division dedicated solely to long-term care pharmacy providers.
Larger long-term care corporations often overshadow the interests of independent long-term care pharmacy providers, NCPA president Joseph Harmison said in a statement. Through this new division, NCPA will be “advocating for and partnering with independent LTC pharmacies,” Harmison said.
The independent pharmacist advocacy group also disclosed that it has hired Susan Janeczko, formerly of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, as director of long-term care policy and regulatory affairs. The announcements come just before the start of the NCPA's 112th Annual Convention and Trade Exposition in Philadelphia, PA. The convention will be held Oct. 23-27.
