Pharma companies will hear the latest updates regarding DHA Pharmacy operations, including the rebate program and the new pharma contracts supporting retail and mail order. Attendees will also hear the latest regarding the VA’s Strategic Acquisition Center’s MSPV program and supporting BPAs and be able to choose between multiple breakout sessions depending on what your specific interests are.
