Event Content & Highlights

Catch up on what you missed.

Pharmacy direct and indirect remuneration, or DIR, is a form of value-based contracting in Medicare Part D. Pharmacy DIR increases the quality of the prescription drug benefit while helping to keep cost-sharing and premiums affordable for beneficiaries.

It should come as no surprise that pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) applaud Congress for recent bipartisan action to further delay the rebate rule as part of legislation to address gun safety and mental health.
