PharmPAC

Fighting to Protect Your Practice, Your Profession, Your Patients, and YOU!

 

What Is PharmPAC?

PharmPAC is the political action committee of the Texas Pharmacy Association—with the single focus of supporting TPA’s advocacy efforts on behalf of Texas pharmacy professionals and the patients they serve. PharmPAC supports elected officials and candidates for office who are pharmacy-friendly and support the pharmacy profession.

The continued advancement of pharmacy depends greatly on the political clout of our profession and of TPA.

It takes a well-funded PAC to support the campaigns of pharmacy-friendly candidates and to help build the credibility of your profession as an effective and influential group.

 

The formal goals of PharmPAC are:

  • To improve and protect the pharmacy profession by encouraging pharmacists, technicians, students and other individuals—on a non-partisan basis—to become more active and effective in state governmental affairs;
  • To assist pharmacy professionals and other individuals in understanding the actions of state government regarding important political issues as well as the political and legislative records of state officeholders and candidates for public office;
  • To educate pharmacy professionals and others about the political/legislative process and encourage their greater involvement in the electoral process and voting;
  • To promote fair and responsible legislation affecting pharmacies, pharmacy professionals and patients;
  • To solicit financial contributions from pharmacy professionals and others to be used in assisting state officeholders and candidates for public office;
  • To assist and support state officeholders and candidates for public office through PharmPAC political endorsements and financial support; and
  • To uphold the tradition of individual liberty and support the rights guaranteed by the constitutions and laws of the United States and the State of Texas.

 

Does My Voice Really Matter?

YES, especially when combined with other pharmacy advocates’ voices! The political process affects you personally every day and has a major impact on your pharmacy career. Government policy affects many areas of pharmacy:

  • Your scope of practice—the procedures, actions, and processes you are permitted to undertake
  • Reimbursement for medications
  • Coverage of, and payment for, services you provide
  • Relationships with your patients
  • Licensing requirements and record-keeping demands
  • Insurance policies, including payers and middlemen
    ...and more!

The stronger our PAC is, the louder your voice will be!
