Get caught up with our most popular articles on PBM Optimization for independent pharmacy owners.

For most pharmacy owners reading this, PBMs are integral to your business as much as they suck the lifeblood from you and your pharmacy. The average pharmacy has more than 90% of its revenue flowing through a PBM. Therefore, you need to optimize that revenue stream if you want to squeak out all the cash and profits that you can from your business. That is why PBM Optimization is one of the critical profit pillars for independent pharmacy owners.

Here’s a recap of the 6 Pharmacy Profit Pillars:

  • Cash-Based Revenue
  • KPI Optimization
  • Marketing
  • Non-PBM Revenue
  • PBM Optimization
  • Team Development

You might be thinking there isn’t much you can do for your PBM-based revenue. While a lot of factors are beyond your control, there are actions you can take to optimize this critical revenue source.

And… because of the PBMs’ propensity for abusive audits and other tactics, you also need to play defense and be ready to protect yourself.
