Pharmacy

Guiding an essential aspect of healthcare.

The Pharmacy Practice team at Husch Blackwell is comprised of industry professionals ready to help you take your financial and business goals to the next level. Whether you’re already in the market, want to implement a specialty pharmacy within your existing institution, or build a pharmacy from the ground up, our team will guide and advise you every step of the way.

With a trend toward patient care from start to finish, implementing a specialty pharmacy within your institution is a way to lower readmission rates while ensuring the best possible outcomes for your patients, and make money in the process. In addition to independent, large, manufacturer- and hospital-owned pharmacies, as well as 340B covered entities, our clients include:

  • Specialty drug manufacturers and distributors
  • Group purchasing organizations (GPOs)
  • Pharmacy licensure and credentialing
  • Pharma services companies (such as reimbursement HUBs, financial assistance providers and co-pay card companies)

Our team also advises pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) on compliance matters, network provider contracting and policy drafting. We structure and negotiate PBM rebate arrangements and pharmacy arrangements with pharmaceutical manufacturers to ensure compliance with applicable fraud and abuse laws. We also advocate for clients in lawsuits and investigations, including class actions, multidistrict litigation, and actions by governmental entities and insurers. From regulatory counseling to litigation, we provide pragmatic advice and workable solutions that achieve our clients’ business goals.
