NCPDP (National Council for Prescription Drug Programs)

The mission of NCPDP (National Council for Prescription Drug Programs) is clear: to create and promote data interchange standards for the pharmacy services sector of the health care industry, and to provide information and resources that educate the industry and support the diverse needs of our members. As needs within the industry are identified, standards are updated to a new version or release. The following is a high-level overview of the latest version/release and/or the most commonly used of those standards and implementation guides, as well as NCPDP’s Data Dictionary and External Code List. Additionally, this document provides version/release/publication reference charts for approved and draft NCPDP standards/implementation guides.
