Pharmacy Times® interviewed Brian Nightengale, president of Good Neighbor Pharmacy, on the steps necessary to support the long-term viability of independent community pharmacies.

Pharmacy Times® interviewed Brian Nightengale, president of Good Neighbor Pharmacy, on how the recent unanimous Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruling on Rutledge v. Pharmaceutical Care Management Association will impact independent pharmacies across the country.

During the discussion, Nightengale addresses the findings of the 2020 NCPA Digest Report which shows there is currently an ongoing decline in independent community pharmacies across the country. Nightengale explains what may be needed to support the long-term viability of independent community pharmacies outside of fair reimbursement policies, which was addressed in the recent SCOTUS ruling.
