Independent Pharmacy Conference 2020
Independent Pharmacy Conference 2020
Canceled due to COVID-19

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Independent Pharmacy Conference scheduled for April 23-26 in Huntington Beach, California. Following increased concerns about COVID-19 over the past few weeks, we felt that canceling the event was the safest option for all involved. The health and safety of our attendees is of the upmost importance as you are essential to your communities during this pandemic. The outbreak affects all attendees traveling to and from the meeting, the families they will return to post event, and all the patients at their independent pharmacies. We are unwilling to put our members in that compromising position.

IPC Pharmacy Services: Reduce Your DIR Fees
Reduce Your DIR Fees
How EQuIPP Helps Your Bottom Line

DIR fees can be difficult to manage. But by excelling in areas of service that they’re already working in, pharmacists can reduce their DIR fees and increase their reimbursements. Improving services like medication therapy management and medication synchronization can improve patient adherence, ultimately reducing DIR fees. By using EQuIPP, pharmacies can better understand its scores known as star ratings. Other ways to improve these scores include operational criteria such as greater generic dispensing rates.

Government Relations
IPC Government Relations
Grassroots Efforts in Iowa

IPC’s Government Relations team asked Iowa members to support two bills, one in the state senate and the other in the house. Bill SF 2343 broadens pharmacist immunization authority and adds a new statewide protocol for point-of-care testing and treatment for flue and step. Bill HF 2553 addresses detrimental PBM tactics, such as gag orders, claw backs and retroactive fees. Our Government Relations team is constantly working to support pro-independent pharmacy legislation across the country.
