End DIR

NCPA is suing the government to end DIR fees. Doing so has been our top priority since 2014. We tried every year of the outgoing administration to persuade the Department of Health and Human Services to adopt new rules to remedy the problem. That effort nearly succeeded in 2019, only to have it die because of opposition from the White House. Having exhausted every effort to work through the legislative and regulatory processes, community pharmacies can wait no longer.

We believe we have a strong legal case against DIR fees. On behalf of our members and the more than 21,000 community pharmacies that we represent, we are now taking our fight to the courts. We will update this page as the case progresses. Please check back for regular updates.
