What about co-op distributions?

EPIC Pharmacies is a true cooperative. In addition to monthly buying group rebates, profits are distributed to members at year-end. These distributions return whatever money remains after paying corporate expenses and is returned to our members based on compliance and volume. It’s just another way it pays be an EPIC Pharmacies member.

What are EPIC Preferred® contract rebates?

The EPIC Preferred® program is built upon the formulary concept to volume buy and collect corresponding rebates for both branded and generic pharmaceuticals. It currently includes more than 7,000 SKUs and is built around our wholesaler/manufacturer/distributor agreements.

Up front, members receive off-invoice savings (discounts from list pricings). Members also receive rebates for compliance, market share percentage, and membership involvement in the programs (volume incentives).

How are rebates distributed?
