LTC Pharmacy

Baldwin Health Policy Group LLC

Paul Baldwin

The bulk of LTC pharmacies are small businesses, serving fewer than 1,000 nursing home beds. The successful operator has to be aware of all the federal and state laws that cover professional regulation and reimbursement, as well as the clinical concerns that afflict the frail elderly population.

LTC pharmacies get their revenue from three primary sources:

  • Medicare Part D
  • Medicaid
  • From Nursing Homes, where nursing homes are reimbursed by Medicare Part A for medications.
  • There are several great trade and professional organizations that serve as valuable resources for these concerns, such as the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, the American Health Care Association, Leading Age and AMDA-Dedicated to Long Term Care Medicine and the National Community Pharmacists Association.

    This site is dedicated to reporting on public policy, legislative, regulatory and industry news. We attempt to make the link between the news and what it means to people operating in the industry.
