Abstract

"Focus on Augusta-Waterville Region" piece on Community Pharmacies LP of Augusta, under CEO Joe Bruno. The sale of five of the company's locations to Rite Aid in December was forced by the state's decision to cut reimbursement rates to pharmacies for filling Medicaid prescriptions. The Augusta-based chain, with eight remaining locations, plans to establish new locations inside independent groceries, continuing its philosophy of finding top pharmacists while opening smaller stores. With details on the company's history, benefits of a local grocery-pharmacy partnership, and a look at Augusta-based GHS Data Management, once a sister company to Community Pharmacies under The Waldron Group of companies. This July, GHS will electronically process all prescription drug claims for Iowa's Medicaid program.
