PRESS RELEASE

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (June 25, 2015) —

National Community Pharmacists Association

(NCPA) CEO B. Douglas Hoey, RPh, MBA, issued the following statement in response to today’s Supreme Court ruling upholding federal insurance subsidies for individuals covered under the Affordable Care Act (or Obamacare).

“Community pharmacists are critical front-line providers of care to many Americans, particularly those in underserved rural and inner-city areas. Every day they help patients, with or without insurance, obtain the prescription drugs or other care that they need. While the political debate over U.S. health care will continue, today’s ruling provides a degree of clarity for community pharmacists as they continue to help patients navigate a complicated health care system.”
