    The systematic death of community pharmacies by every part of the health care industry, from being charged more to buy inventory than chains, having to pay fees when customers bring in their insurance cards, as if it's our fault they use them, and being reimbursed at lower-than-cost rates. When did it become O.K. to get billed for doing normal business? No other industry has to put up with these types of practices. There is no buy at cost and mark-up a percentage to ensure an adequate profit for the business. Pharmacy is run completely by outside third parties that make sure they have enormous profits.

    That is so true. PBM's unregulated and have lobbyists everywhere. There is a Supreme Court case being heard in this next session regarding many of these issues. I think it was brought by the association in Arkansas. It will be interesting to see the ruling. There have been bills in this state the last 2 years on PBM's this year one senate bill was never even heard! Somehow they got the hearing cancelled! We need to talk to our local legislators and show them these issues. They truly are killing the community environment

    As a consumer the most important topic is patient safety - who's filling my prescription and under what labor conditions?

    As a pharmacist for over 40 years it's working conditions, performance metrics, and what's my legacy going to be?!!

    As a younger pharmacist it must be career options, salary, student debt, and what's my professional duty v. employer demands?
