For community pharmacists, reaching customers who are eligible for discounted medicines through the 340B Prime Vendor Program can help improve profitability while serving patient populations more effectively.
The 340B Prime Vendor Program was established to provide healthcare providers with access to low-cost medications, enabling them to better serve patients in under-resourced communities who may not otherwise be able to afford the medication they need.
With a reputation for providing excellent service to the community, independent pharmacies are often the best candidate for reaching out to entities within their communities that are eligible for the 340B Prime Vendor Program. In doing so, independents can perform a valuable service by connecting more patients with the healthcare they require while also creating an additional revenue stream that can help community pharmacies to remain profitable and successful.
To provide discounted medicines to covered entities, independent pharmacies need a relationship with a pharmaceutical supplier that participates in the 340B Prime Vendor Program. For thousands of independents nationwide, H. D. Smith is the 340B Prime Vendor supplier of choice.
