Effective June 14th, Express Scripts has ended its Medicare “bonus pool” fee collection. This is a significant win for pharmacies, and here’s what it means for you:

What’s Changing:

  • No More Bonus Pool Fees: Starting June 14, 2024, pharmacies will no longer have to pay bonus pool fees on any claims.
  • Full Reimbursement: Pharmacies will receive full reimbursement for any bonus pool fees collected on claims dated between January 1 and June 13, 2024.

This positive change is a direct result of the relentless efforts of the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) and the strong advocacy from independent pharmacies across the nation. It’s a testament to the power of collective action and the importance of raising our voices to drive impactful reforms in the healthcare industry.

Ending the Medicare “bonus pool” fee collection means less financial stress for pharmacies and fairer compensation for the incredible services you provide. Now, you can reinvest those savings into better patient care and other improvements.
