PTR PODCAST Episode 11: Discriminatory pricing in independent pharmacy with Bruce Roberts, Rph., NCPA
PTR PODCAST Episode 11 is focused on the subject of discriminatory pricing in independent pharmacy. In the prescription drug market, price discrepancies are common for independent community pharmacies and their patients. They cost consumers a fortune and largely determine winners and losers in the retail pharmacy community, rather than letting the marketplace decide.
Special Guest: Bruce T. Roberts, RPh
Bruce Roberts has devoted his professional life to the advancement of independent community pharmacy and pharmacist-centered patient care. He is a staunch supporter of the vital role that pharmacists can and must play in our increasingly complex health care delivery system.
