AMCP Policy & Advocacy Focus Areas for 2019

AMCP 2019 Policy and Advocacy Focus Areas for 2019 

Each year, AMCP’s Board of Directors establishes the policy and advocacy focus areas for the Academy. Those areas then become the primary focus of AMCP’s advocacy efforts. They are developed during a joint meeting of the Public Policy Committee and the Legislative and Regulatory Action Committee (LRAC) held during NEXUS. At that meeting, Committee members review the results of the annual member survey and discuss relevant legislative and regulatory actions that impact managed care pharmacy. After careful consideration they develop recommendations which are then reviewed by the Board and a final decision is made. 

AMCP staff and committee members will focus on strategies where AMCP can be most effective in these targeted focus areas. Increasing your participation in response to grassroots alerts is your opportunity to participate in those efforts. Your participation is a necessary key element of AMCP’s overall efforts to continue to ensure that the voice of managed care pharmacy is heard.
