Purchasing Options

While it is possible to purchase drugs directly from the drug manufacturer, most clinics work with a drug wholesaler to purchase prescription drugs. The wholesaler negotiates with the pharmaceutical manufacturers on behalf of its customers. Working with a drug wholesaler simplifies the ordering process for clinics allowing them to get all their products from one source.

The major drug wholesalers in California include: AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Distribution, and McKesson Drug Company.
