Drug Take-Back Program

Our Drug-Take Back Program ensures your customers have a convenient way to properly dispose of over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs and controlled prescription drugs. Disposal also helps to prevent prescription drug abuse, accidental poisoning and environmental hazards such as water contamination.

Rapid Credit Program

Many hospitals rely on an outside vendor to handle their reverse pharmaceutical distribution process to garner return credits. Often it takes 6-12 months or more to receive credit and potentially longer to reconcile those credits via traditional credit programs.

The Pharma Logistics Rapid Credit Program delivers your credit within 14 days from the day your product arrives at our facility. Meaning, you can reconcile your accounts sooner and free up your staff from bookkeeping, allowing them to focus on patient care and other responsibilities that keep your hospital running smoothly.

  • Receive your credit faster than through traditional credit programs
  • Boost cash flow and generate reoccurring revenue
  • Upfront payment eliminates time spent on reconciliation
  • The risk of a decrease in product return value, due to changes in manufacturer policies, is transferred from your pharmacy to Pharma Logistics
  • Accurate, predictive calculations of ERV mean higher prefunded payments
  • Use our Rapid Credit Program with both our Onsite and Box and Ship services
  • Online Client Portal for 24/7 data access

Reduce risk and get your credit quicker, enroll in the Rapid Credit Program now.
