Issues & Advocacy

From the Courtroom to the Capitol, We FIGHT for Independents

Lots of groups represent independent pharmacy in Texas. Most of them say the right things. But only APRx has proved that it is willing to take forceful, decisive actions to defend your rights and economic interests.

From our landmark RICO lawsuit against CVS Caremark to court actions fighting anti-competitive preferred drug plans and unfair Medicaid reimbursement, we act decisively while others talk.

Our full-time political advocacy arm, the Texas Pharmacy Business Council, is a powerful force at the Capitol. The recognized leader in defending independent interests, TPBC works year-round with legislators, regulatory agencies and other interest groups to build relationships and deliver results.

APRx monitors and responds to a variety of independent pharmacy issues:

  • Medicaid managed care
  • Medicare Part D
  • Audit standards
  • DMEPOS qualifications & bidding
  • DPS prescription monitoring
  • Health care reform
  • PBM transparency
  • Preferred networks
  • Pharmacy staff regulations
  • Pharmacy building standards
  • Prescription discount cards
  • Reimbursement standards
  • Generic drug trends
  • Pharmacy revenue channels
