And if that fact can be proven we will kill the mail order pharmacy trend without any anti-competitive legislation or FTC involvement like you are now seeing in New York.If the plan providers who are paying for coverage can be shown that mail order savings is a myth, you won’t need any law to back them off the mandatory mail order.

For maintenance medications, the convenience of a mail order service delivering medications right to one’s mailbox may be preferable for some patients.So how do we fight this mail order pharmacy trend if you are a traditional retail pharmacy?If we can show our value and prove we are a less expensive option for providing prescriptions to patients, then the mail order pharmacy threat will disappear on its own.
