Merritt to step down from PCMA in December
After 15 years at the helm of the Pharmaceutical Care Management Association, CEO and president - Mark Merritt - is stepping down, effective at year-end. Under his leadership, PCMA grew from an obscure group into the nation's leading voice on prescription drug benefits, according to a press statement. One of his first missions was to help shape the bill which established the Medicare Part D program in 2003. Since then, Merritt has helped navigate the industry through countless legislative and regulatory debates in Washington, D.C. and the states, including the Affordable Care Act, says PCMA.
