To Drive Your Success
In Challenging Times
There’s no shortage of pressing challenges for independent pharmacies: slashed Medicaid reimbursements, the growth of restrictive preferred networks and dwindling access to specialty drugs. Not to mention our ongoing problems with Medicaid reimbursement, audits, MACs, PBM clawbacks and rising operating costs.
The key to surviving and thriving in this challenging environment is to continuously find ways to lower your costs and operate more efficiently while adapting to changing trends. APRx is leading the way in identifying and building solutions to help you meet these challenges.
In December 2014, American Pharmacies signed a landmark six-year contract with AmerisourceBergen that propels us into an era of unprecedented growth and prosperity. The powerful economics of our sole-source contract, coupled with the expertise and hard work of our staff and the support of ABDC, is producing rapid growth and tremendous economic benefits for our shareholders.
As our major strategic partner and a key factor in our ongoing growth, ABDC is a powerful source of expertise and resources to help drive every facet of success for independent pharmacy. ABDC proves at every turn that its resources and its commitment to APRx are changing the game. From their signage offer to our members to their business coaching and their unique generics offering for APRx, they are fully committed to our success.
