“PBMs are looking to line their pockets, not care for patients. They don’t sponsor baseball teams, they don’t participate in the chili cook-offs, and they sure aren’t going to turn on their lights in the middle of the night to fill a needed prescription.”

We're not just pill counters! Here's a great piece by the Press of Atlantic City about how patients can better utilize #pharmacists' expertise. #communitypharmacymatters
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld used to joke that he couldn’t understand why we needed pharmacists. After all, he’d say, the hardest part of their jobs was transferring pills from a large bottle into a smaller bottle.
