ACCP Report - October 2017

ACCP-PAC Contributions Support Bipartisan Health Care Leaders in Congress


To advance its Medicare Initiative, ACCP is working with health care leaders from both parties who are willing to collaborate with colleagues across the aisle to enact health care legislation focused on team-based, patient-centered care that measures and rewards quality and outcomes.

Despite the current dysfunction on Capitol Hill, recent passage of the “Creating High-Quality Results and Outcomes Necessary to Improve Chronic (CHRONIC) Care Act of 2017” and ongoing implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) demonstrate that Congress can still work in a bipartisan manner to tackle some of the most urgent challenges facing the long-term sustainability of the Medicare program.

Within this political environment, ACCP must provide support for moderate bipartisan legislators to ensure they remain in Washington and continue to advance policies that meaningfully address the health care issues currently facing the United States.

Only ACCP members are eligible to contribute to the PAC and allow the College to make these vital political contributions. With its almost 18,000 members ACCP is in a position to become one of the most prominent pharmacy PACs in Washington. To do this, however, ACCP needs the widespread support of its membership.

If each ACCP member contributes just $25, ACCP-PAC stands to raise over $350,000. Each ACCP member should consider donating at least $25 to ACCP-PAC.
