Flash Returns

No pharmacy owner can ignore their expiring pharmaceuticals, it would be just as costly to not shop around for the best price on key inventory. Being an expert at every manufacturer’s policy is beyond any store or chain. Let us, as the preferred PDS reverse distribution company serve you with our PDS exclusive low rates, waived destruction fees, waived shipping, and live help available with one of our staff. Try getting the average reverse distributor on the phone, it can be nearly impossible! Independent pharmacy is why we were created: by pharmacist and industry partners tired of getting nowhere with the phone tree run around and confusing credit statements. Our sign up is the easiest, and returns process is the best since it was designed with the least clicks and workflow stopping issues. With all the new track and trace requirements, inventory audits, and increasingly complex regulations around destruction you can’t afford to ignore this part of the business, and likely don’t have time to devote staff to it. Have a technician watch our training video today and turn your expired goods into credit now. By the time they watch, sign up, and do a return, likely 20-30 minutes will have them feeling oriented to our process.

GeriMed, Inc.

Founded in 1983 as the first LTC pharmacy GPO, GeriMed has been pioneering solutions for nearly 40 years aimed at positioning closed-door and retail ‘combo’ independent community pharmacies servicing the long-term care (LTC) population to thrive through the ever-changing contractual, economic and regulatory demands of our industry.

 

While operating as a full-service GPO to closed-door pharmacies, GeriMed’s LTC PSAO Network has garnered national attention with their unique ComboMed™ program, the first of its kind to offer a long-awaited solution to retail pharmacies seeking new revenue streams. You may be a retail ‘combo’ independent pharmacy if you operate under a retail designation while also providing services to patients in various LTC care settings, some of which include Assisted Living Facilities, Group Homes, Skilled Nursing Facilities, even patients in the vastly-growing ‘Medical at Home’ level of care population.

 

Qualified pharmacies can experience higher reimbursement rates, zero DIR fees on Med D LTC claims, no per-claim transaction fees, and a lower pharma cost of goods (in addition to your existing supplier agreement discount), all under your retail licensure and operating space. ComboMed™ is a game changer for ‘combos’ looking to either growth and remain competitive in the retail space or potentially transition into a closed-door model in the future.

 

Closed-door pharmacy still remains GeriMed’s most recognized area of expertise and growing book of business, making up the majority of our customer base and national footprint. We invite you to challenge your existing network reimbursement through our complimentary, zero-commitment profitability analysis. info@gerimedgso.com | 1-800-456-4374
