NCPDP - Comment

  • The second bullet under Limitations, Dependencies, and Preconditions for Consideration should be modified to the following:
    • NCPDP is developing a Real Time Prescription Benefit standard that should be monitored as a potential emerging implementation specification.

Real Time Prescription Benefit

The American Medical Association appreciates the opportunity to comment. Real-time Prescription Benefit (RTPB) is mentioned, however it is not linked nor actually named. We believe this section should be updated as RTPB now has a standard out for ballot.

NCPDP Comment

NCPDP developed a Beta version of the Real Time Prescription Benefit Standard to be balloted in the Fall of 2019.
