The Coalition for Community Pharmacy Action (CCPA) is sponsoring a national community pharmacy cost of dispensing study. CCPA is an alliance between the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) and the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) and has contracted with the MPI Group, an independent survey organization, to conduct this survey. The last study was conducted in 2006.

Medicaid’s movement toward an acquisition cost system of reimbursement and CMS’ public posting of a final National Average Drug Acquisition Cost (NADAC) file make the timing of this survey critical.
