Low-cost generic distribution is a lifesaver for the independent pharmacy. Turning a profit in healthcare today is harder than ever – the cost of medicine continues to rise, and pharmacies continually face new challenges from the evolving healthcare landscape as well as pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) and DIR fees. In this environment, generic drugs are one of the independent pharmacy’s best sources of profit – but only with access to competitively priced generic distribution.

Typically, independents turn to more than one generic pharmaceutical supplier to find the lowest priced generics. But generic distribution with many wholesalers can put community pharmacies at a disadvantage.
Many community pharmacies today have realized that generic distribution with one primary pharmacy supplier is helping them to secure competitive pricing and better rebates. Choosing to buy generic medicine wholesale from companies like H. D. Smith, an independent pharmacy distributor dedicated to serving the needs of the independent pharmacy, can have a positive impact on the profitability of your business.
