Say you are an insurance company, and you are looking at reimbursement rates to give to your participating pharmacies. You settle on something thats totally short-cutting the pharmacy (like cost + $2.50). All is well because the pharmacies don’t really have much of a choice.
Then lo and behold some fuckers at Publix are giving away antibiotics for free. Then you see Walmart and other douchebag chains giving away Rx’s for $4/month. Obviously they are sending the message that we can afford to give shit away for free/below cost because we obviously are making too much money filling other things.
To Publix and the $4/month chains: Thanks for shitting in our beds. In an attempt to drum up business under the false pretense of “helping people” you have shit on the rest of us who don’t have multi-million dollar corporate offices to float bouncing paychecks. You are fucking up the profession of pharmacy far more than you will ever gain. Don’t you see that the insurance companies see this shit? Don’t you think that you are publically lighting your cuban cigars with fresh $100’s and blowing the smoke in the faces of those who hold our business (reimbursement) in their hands? You are ruining it for the rest of us. You are giving those rat fucker insurance companies enough ammo to cut their reimbursements even more to us. You are shitting on the little guys and turning our own profession against itself for your own selfish corporate greed.
So yeah, if you are so gung-ho to give away shit for free or below cost, then why dont you pharmacists there work for free or below cost. I’m tired of having to hear people bitch about $4/month drugs and free antibiotics due to fuckers in our own profession. Way to go guys, way to go, you’ll need those free antibiotics when the insurance companies get their heads out of their asses and bend us over.
