Washington, D.C.– Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Co-Chair of the Community Pharmacy Caucus, introduced The Pharmacy Competition & Consumer Choice Act today. This common-sense bill would increase competition and transparency in the delivery of pharmacy services, reducing costs for America’s pharmacists and their customers.

“As the face of neighborhood health care, America’s pharmacists are on the frontlines of delivering quality, affordable health care and they deserve our full support,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers. “However, there are policies on the books today which unintentionally undermine our nation’s pharmacists and their customers. As we all know, markets work best when artificial barriers to competition are eliminated and customers are empowered with the information they need to make informed decisions. By advancing transparency and competition, my bill will protect America’s community pharmacists and lower costs for their customers.”

The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) publicly endorsed today’s legislation. The NCPA is the leading voice for America’s 254,000 licensed pharmacists.

Rep. McMorris Rodgers is the lead Republican sponsor of The Medication Therapy Management Benefits Act– another top priority for America’s community pharmacists.
