Department of Veterans Affairs

Faster, Better and More Cost-Effective Prescription Processing

I suggest the Department of Defense be required to use the Department of Veterans Affairs' Consolidated Mail Outpatient Pharmacy Program (CMOP) instead of using a private contractor and paying approximately 3 times what it currently costs VA to process the same workload for its beneficiaries. Based on the current DoD prescription volume, if only 30% of its prescription workload were moved to VA CMOPs, it would save the government ~$210 million per year, while at the same time improving access and patient satisfaction.
