Interview with Mike James - Director of Government Affairs ACPCN
ACP has registered hundreds of independent pharmacists to participate on a Congressional Network “Pharmacy Committee.” Committees will be formed in every state!
“Every congressional district has independent pharmacies, and we want to make sure Congress hears from all of them,” stated Bill Rustin, ACPCN President. “Members of Congress should be talking with their local pharmacies rather than the PBM industry in Washington.”
ACP Congressional Network is the Nation’s Largest
Pharmacy Grassroots Army
ACPCN helps independent pharmacists arrange meetings with members of Congress and shape critical legislation. It is organized around Pharmacy Committees that help ACPCN organize hometown data about pharmacy operations, and committee members often contact their elected officials to provide timely information.
ACPCN maintains a database of members in the Congressional Network. The information is used by the ACPCN team in Washington to ensure members of Congress focus health care initiatives on patients and taxpayer savings rather than special-PBM interests.
“Our grassroots program will build on the successful model that is giving hometown pharmacies a voice in Washington,” according to Rustin.
