HDA Political Action Committee
The HDA Political Action Committee is a qualified, multi-candidate PAC registered with the Federal Election Commission. A vital component of the Association’s advocacy efforts, the HDA PAC is an effective way to become more politically active and support candidates who share the legislative priorities of primary pharmaceutical distributors.
The PAC provides campaign contributions to federal candidates for elected office, who are interested in policy issues that advance the safe, secure and efficient delivery of lifesaving medicines. Additionally, the HDA PAC provides the Association and its member companies with a greater ability to communicate with elected officials.
The HDA PAC also informs and updates PAC contributors about key legislative and regulatory issues affecting the healthcare distribution industry, HDA member companies and customers.
Every day, policies are enacted by legislators that can have a long-term impact on the viability of the healthcare distribution industry, including:
- Pharmaceutical traceability implementation
- Tax issues
- Prescription drug abuse and diversion
- Distributor licensure and accreditation
- Medicaid/Medicare reimbursement
- Pharmaceutical importation
- Drug shortages and product availability
