Pharmacy DIR Fees; A National Landscape

DIR stands for “direct and indirect remuneration” and are also referred to as “network to plan rebates.” DIR was initially coined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) related to the Medicare Part D benefit to address price concessions (e.g. drug manufacturer rebate). Essentially, rates are established in which corresponding fees are often taken out of pharmacy reimbursements. Unfortunately, these fees can be very confusing and have a history of hurting independent and/or retail pharmacies’ income. PPA has partnered with the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) to put together a webinar that covers everything pharmacists need to know about DIR fees and how to manage them!

Target Audience: Registered Pharmacists, Pharmacy Owners

CE Credit: 1 hour

Presenter: Ronna Hauser, Vice President Pharmacy Affairs, NCPA; Susan Pilch, Vice President Policy and Regulatory Affairs, NCPA; & Matt DiLoreto, Senior Director State Government Affairs, NCPA
