NACDS applauds House passage of Pro-Soldier, Pro-Savings Bill

The National Association of Chain Drug Stores applauded the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the pro-soldier, pro-savings bill that will preserve access to community pharmacies for military families. The portion of the bill related to the TRICARE pharmacy program extends the current freeze on increases to retail pharmacy co-payments. It also includes language that would clarify that the Department of Defense may negotiate with drug manufacturers for federal pricing discounts for TRICARE prescriptions filled at retail pharmacies, in the same manner as they do today for TRICARE prescriptions filled at military bases or by mail order.
