PCMA Applauds Passage of Postal Service Reform Act

(Washington, D.C.) — Pharmaceutical Care Management Association (PCMA) President and CEO JC Scott released the following statement on the passage of the Postal Service Reform Act:

“We applaud Congress for passing the Postal Service Reform Act. Specifically, we would like to thank Senators Gary Peters (D-MI) and Rob Portman (R-OH), and Representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and James Comer (R-KY) for their work on the legislation. The United States Postal Service (USPS) is vital to mail-service pharmacy operations that serve millions of patients across the country.

Home delivery of medications is often a more affordable, convenient, and safer option for patients with chronic conditions, and patients residing in rural and other underserved communities. The 90-day drug supplies provided by mail-service pharmacies also typically help patients stay on their medications as prescribed by their physicians.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, pharmacy benefit managers’ mail-service pharmacies have continued to be a safe, convenient, and reliable way for patients to obtain maintenance medications and other needed prescription drugs.

We look forward to continuing to work with Congress and the Administration to facilitate the use of home delivery of prescription drugs and to lower drug costs for all Americans.”
