We Do Far More Than Save You Money
What Sets Us Apart From Other Co-ops Our pharmacy owners share our uncompromising drive and commitment to defend the independent business model. They share our belief that a pharmacy co-op should deliver a lot more than just economic advantages.
From the Capitol to the Courtroom, We Fight for Texas Independents
Lots of groups represent independent pharmacy in Texas. 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 advocacy arm, the Texas Pharmacy Business Council, is a powerful force at the Capitol. The recognized leader in defending independent interests, TPBC combines the strength of APRx and the Alliance of Independent Pharmacists to work year-round with legislators, regulatory agencies and other interest groups to build relationships and deliver results.
