AmerisourceBergen Hospice Pharmacy Services

Care for your patients in hospice while being paid fairly

We match local high-quality independent community pharmacies with independent hospice agencies - keeping local caregivers in charge of local care. 

Hospice patients benefit from best-in-class pharmacy services and clinical support from your pharmacy, while you benefit from fair reimbursement and additional transparency. 

Compassionate Care

As a local community pharmacy, you're known for superior customer service and top-level customer satisfaction. Continue providing your high-touch level of care to patients in your community as they transition into hospice.

We began working with AmerisourceBergen’s Pharmacy Hospice Administrator program in 2013. This was a great opportunity for our pharmacy. We now average 500 hospice prescriptions per month between 2 hospices that we contract with. The best part is that we have dual roles as the local pharmacy and the insurance provider, which allows us to make an average gross profit of 64% and $13.46 per prescription! And that’s before any rebates!
