Better future of Independent Pharmacies

Who is GirishGPO?

GirishGPO is the culmination of the founder’s 30+ years of experience in, and understanding of, the generic Rx distribution industry. As he navigated the industry, Girish Ray, President and CEO, came to realize that small, independent pharmacies are increasingly being taken advantage of by insurance companies, competitors, chains and drug wholesalers.

Wholesalers are not your friends!

Just because you are receiving free dinners from wholesalers doesn’t mean they aren’t stealing your profits. Although you receive an extra 1 to 3% discount on name brands, you are still being robbed when you pay their inflated generic prices! If you are like most small businesses and independent pharmacy owners, you lack the time to shop around, making you the biggest target for unscrupulous drug wholesalers .Also, advanced software is being used to corner the retail pharmacy market.

Below is a spreadsheet that explains further how GirishGPO can save you money, and ultimately, time.

With 10% plus/minus accuracy, we have analyzed pharmacy prices offered by GirishGPO vs five large national wholesaler prices. You will see the percentage of difference in prices based upon 120 top SKUs. According to our results, each of these wholesalers is overcharging by almost 30%, compared to GirishGPO.


As you can see, the average is a 27.5% difference, but as other other owners join, that difference could reach 35%; this means a whopping potential 35% price break with GirishGPO over national wholesaler prices! (These are scientifically proven results, available to potential GirishGPO distributors and customers).

Our bottom-line pricing to you equals 5% to 15% lower prices than your current best generic pharmaceutical prices, depending upon the technique used and success rate with this given formula.


You are not alone!

As a smaller independent, you aren’t the only target of these wholesalers; consumers are also being robbed! They have been fooled by the larger chains into believing that because they are larger, they have greater buying power, and therefore offer customers the most competitive pricing! This is a false assumption.

GirishGPO is excited to offer the best possible prices not just to independent pharmacies, but to unknowing consumers. We will do so by buying generics in bulk at discounted prices and passing the savings onto you, the independent pharmacies, and to consumers.

So, we are inviting you--local entrepreneurs/pharmacy owners--to take part in our distributorships in your market. As a local GirishGPO member, you will enjoy access to our products at extremely discounted prices.

GirishGPO has the best possible prices for the top generic Rx medications , plus top generic OTC's, and top brand OTC's for independent pharmacies, the only way we can pass it on to independent pharmacy is through local 3PL (Third party logistics), That is why we are inviting local entrepreneurs/pharmacist to come forward and take our distributorship in their market, in this case, GirishGPO distributors will supply our products which include top generic Rx product), top generic OTC's and top brand OTC's to a given pharmacy who is a local GPO member.

GirishGPO covers all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Under this formula, we believe there is potential to grow to 300 GPO distributors under the GirishGPO umbrella; thus, our mantra: the GPO of GPOs. You can be one of the select 75 to 300 local pharmacy members, under a GPO distributor. Distributors who join can also enjoy a nice profit from successful GPO growth.

Greater buying power means bigger discounts for you!

As business people, we all understand the law of supply and demand. The more members who join GirishGPO, the greater the volume and buying power! As our network grows its GPO membership through local distributors, the prices will drop accordingly, We also use various techniques to help keep our prices competitive for you.

At its peak, GirishGPO has the potential of combining the buying power of up to 30,000 perspective pharmacies, including small chains. With your interest in mind, we plan on bringing you the best prices and maximums benefits, with hopes of you spreading the word to your cohorts who are owners of independent pharmacies.

Besides saving money, you will have more time to concentrate on more important business responsibilities, such as marketing, administration and growth, instead worrying about budgeting and your company’s survival!

How GirishGPO plans to help Independent Pharmacies

Help bring revenues to pharmacies:
  • Billing Codes help increase revenues:

    Lots of independent pharmacy owners are not aware of the billing codes. GirishGPO is in contact with the health benefit company, whereby independent pharmacy can provide compliance service to Medicaid patients and do the billing with the Billing Codes. This will bring revenues to the pharmacy. This revenue can go as high as $2500 to $3000 a month. Once the agreement with GirishGPO is finalized, the details can be posted. Independent pharmacy can contact Gaurang on ‘gshukla@girishgpo.com’

Deal with injustices:
  • PBM situation:

    While appreciating PBM’s responsibilities and their role in keeping cost of drugs low, it is only fair that independent pharmacy owners educate themselves with PBM requirements but at the same time raise the voice. We hear all the time terrible incidents on both the sides. GirishGPO intends to take input from reputable pharmacists and try to be in a guiding position.

  • GirishGPO also has plans to provide strategy to contest PBMs: There appears a need for independents to be united against PBMs, as PBM current business practices lack transparency, and causes lot of damage to independent pharmacies.

Professional help:
  • Help with compliance:

    With all the kinds of new regulations including DEA regulations, GirishGPO is in a position to systematically help independent pharmacies comply with the regulation. GirishGPO is appointing experts in this area to help pharmacy owners.

  • GirishGPO also has plans to provide strategy to contest PBMs: There appears a need for independents to be united against PBMs, as PBM current business practices lack transparency, and causes lot of damage to independent pharmacies.

  • Centralized Grievance Cell:

    GirishGPO will provide facility to Independent Pharmacy owners to share their comments, experiences, injustices, grievances on the GirishGPO website by regions, by authorities (state, central or insurance), and by wholesalers.

  • Facts:

    There are lot of facts pharmacy owners may not be aware of as they are busy with their own business worries and challenges. GirishGPO website page will have lot of eye opening facts. Some of them may come from pharmacy owners as well (they will be bonafide). Pharmacy owners will be encouraged and welcomed to post their different experiences, as many of them may be working for ‘Chains’ and how they charge the cash paying customers! E.g. Betamethasone Cream!

    • For Betamethasone Cream (tube 45 g; 0.1% Betamethasone valerate) ; pharmacy cost from wholesaler is $27.55; and pharmacy owner has to sell it at $35 to cash patients.

    • We happen to find out that Walgreens and CVS sell at $9 to cash patients.

    • This means what independent pharmacy is paying $27.55, for the same product ‘Chains’ are paying less than $9 to wholesaler!

    • If cash paying patients find out this price anomaly, they will never go to independent pharmacy again.

    This is what we found out! We will find out more items like to make you aware about how Independent Pharmacies are misinformed by wholesalers...

  • Committee of highly ethical pharmacists : GirishGPO is setting up a select committee of highly-ethical and committed pharmacists from all over US. This committee will have in-depth knowledge about our industry from the top, and about the laws and bylaws governing Independent pharmacies. This committee will be financed from the profits of GirishGPO, and committee members only will have full control to utilize the funds for the betterment of independent pharmacies. Furthermore, this committee will also be participated by an attorney who is well aware about the IRS formalities. This committee will help to take up the major national issues faced by independent pharmacies.

  • Low Reimbursement : Third party paying too little as dispensing fees, and still paying old price when price has already gone up, whereby pharmacists ends up losing lot of money on cost of the drugs. This issue needs to be addressed and GirishGPO is looking into this matter.

  • Backstabbing by wholesalers : Independent pharmacy owners do not have a slightest idea of what is going on behind their back that is affecting them while they are busy filling a few Rx they get.

    Big wholesalers one way or the other get hold of generic purchases from independent pharmacies, they combine it with chain purchasing power. Once their buying power becomes bigger, they go and bully the manufacturer. They not only get the better price but get ten other special benefits and just a few are passed on to the independent pharmacy selectively, e.g. when the product is in shortage, they give first access to chain drug stores.

  • Unlocking the ‘dam’: A spreadsheet of generic pharma industry clearly shows only three wholesalers controlling 85% of distributions, and they do it by bullying, and playing games behind back. They have ‘locked-in’ this high percentage market by a ‘Lock-in’ mechanism. Independent pharmacy owners may have overlooked this while they wine and dine, and are forced to comply while wholesalers do things behind their back.

  • Reversing the OTC distribution:

    • Somehow chain drugs store managed to steal OTC business from independents, and according to our survey they are working at 400% margins.

    • GirishGPO is going to come up with its own label, and promote the label to consumers directly and try to reverse the whole distribution of Generic and Brand OTC’S, whereby drug store gets their share of distribution back and consumers stop getting ripped off from chain drug stores.

“GirishGPO IS BUILDING A NATIONAL PLATFORM, A STRONG UNITED MEMBERSHIP OF 30,000 INDEPENDENT (RETAIL) PHARMACY OWNERS PRIMARILY TO H E L P THEM SAVE MONEY IN DIFFERENT WAYS AND ADDITIONALLY OFFER BENEFICIAL SERVICES.”
