HDMA PAC—The Political Action Committee of the Healthcare Distribution Management Association

The Healthcare Distribution Management Association Political Action Committee (HDMA PAC) is a qualified, multi-candidate PAC registered with the Federal Election Commission.  A vital component of our advocacy efforts, the HDMA PAC is an effective way to become more politically active and support candidates who share the legislative priorities of primary, full-service distributors.

Every day, policies are enacted by legislators that can have a long-term impact on the viability of the healthcare distribution industry, including:

  • Prescription drug anti-counterfeiting initiatives
  • Uniform pedigree requirements for prescription drugs
  • Tax reform
  • Distributor licensure and accreditation
  • Importation
  • Medicaid/Medicare
  • Controlled substances regulations
  • Influenza (pandemic and seasonal) and emergency response

The purpose of the PAC is to:

  • Provide campaign contributions to federal candidates for elective office who are interested in policy issues that advance the safe, secure and efficient delivery of life-saving medicines;
  • Provide HDMA and our member companies with a greater ability to communicate with elected officials;
  • Inform and update PAC members about key legislative and regulatory issues that affect the healthcare distribution industry, HDMA member companies and customers.
