Expanding Patient Access to Pharmacists’ Services

The Problem: Access to Care

Millions of Americans, including children and seniors, lack adequate access to primary care services – especially in underserved communities.

Learn more about the impact in your state and how pharmacists are ready to help.

About Us

The Patient Access to Pharmacists’ Care Coalition (PAPCC) is a multi-stakeholder and interdisciplinary initiative. Membership is comprised of organizations representing patients, pharmacists, and pharmacies, as well as other interested stakeholders.

Our Mission

The mission of the Patient Access to Pharmacists’ Care Coalition (PAPCC) is to develop and help enact a federal policy proposal that would enable Medicare beneficiary access to, and payment for, Medicare Part B services by state-licensed pharmacists in medically underserved communities. Our primary goal is to improve medically underserved seniors’ access to pharmacists’ services consistent with state scope of practice laws and regulations.
