Principles for Sound Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Practices: What's Next?
It has been nearly 20 years since AMCP and other stakeholders adopted the Principles for a Sound Formulary System. Since that time, requirements for pharmacy and therapeutics committees (P&T) have been adopted by the Medicare Part D program, health insurance marketplace plans, commercial health plans, Medicaid programs, and other public payers. Changes and evolution in the health care system, including a focus on value-based care, suggest the need for updated recommendations from a broad stakeholder coalition. This Forum brought together experts to consider P&T practices that reflect the current health care system and provide recommendations to allow for a transparent P&T process in today’s health care system.
