Working with the right generic prescription distributor can make a big difference for independent pharmacies.

Discount generic drugs are a crucial profit center for community pharmacies. As the cost of drugs continues to rise and pharmacies face pricing pressure from DIR fees and pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), generics represents one of the best opportunities for independents to stay in the black – provided that they can acquire generics at competitive prices.
Choosing the right generic prescription distributor is critical. Many of the larger generic pharmaceutical suppliers can offer great pricing but do not necessarily focus on driving success for smaller community pharmacies. These independent pharmacies need a generic prescription distributor to be responsive at all times, and to understand they unique needs of their business.
That’s why, when choosing a generic prescription distributor, more independent pharmacies today are enjoying great prices on generics and excellent customer service with H. D. Smith.
