Having access to the lowest priced generics is an essential part of maintaining profitability for community pharmacies.

In a market with extreme pricing pressures from rising drug costs, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) and DIR fees, retailing cheap generics is one of the few areas where independent pharmacies can count on strong profits.
Finding the lowest priced generics begins with finding the right generic drugs supplier. In the past, this typically meant working with a large wholesale pharmacy distributor who may focus on supplying large chain pharmacies. But for the independent pharmacy, this may not be the best source for lowest priced generics. That’s because these wholesalers typically reserve the biggest discounts for their big box retail customers, while charging smaller independent customers a higher price. It’s no wonder that many independent pharmacies today are choosing a generic medicine distributor who specializes in helping smaller community pharmacies.
