NCPDP - Comment

    • The Standard Listed – NCPDP Version D.0 is incorrect. The Standard and Implementation Guide are not separated. There is no separate standard and the Standard section material should be deleted.
    • Standard Implementation/Specification: incorrectly lists the wrong version of the Telecommunication Standard Implementation Guide. It should be Telecommunication Standard Implementation Guide, Version D, Release 0 (Version D.0), August 2010.
