NCPA: Local pharmacies are running out of time

A new NCPA survey reveals local pharmacies are struggling to stay afloat after the January 1 implementation of the CMS DIR rule, requiring all pharmacy price concessions (i.e., DIR fees) to be assessed at the point of sale.

Almost one-third of respondents indicated they may close their doors this year because of the financial pressure.
