Understanding Competition in U.S. Prescription Drug Markets: Entry and Supply Chain Dynamics
With CVS buying Aetna, independent pharmacies will end up closing the doors. This past month we saw what CVS Caremark did by lowering the reimbursement by adjusting its MAC list. We still are loosing money filling rxs managed by Caremark. Also, past weeks payment was delayed and we were told it was due to technical glitch. May be? But also maybe our money was used to buy Aetna. Also our customers are constantly steered to CVS pharmacy or mail order. Getting really nervous about this acquisition.
