Abstract

"Focus: Health Care" piece on PIN Rx, a new mail-order pharmacy on Indian Island that will serve patients enrolled in MaineCare, Maine Rx and Drugs for the Elderly. Scheduled to open on September 19, the facility will save state government and low-income Mainers money, while giving the Penobscot Indian Nation an economic boost. But Chris Gauthier, president of the Maine Pharmacy Association, worries that PIN Rx will hurt his members' business, forcing more of Maine's independent pharmacies out of business. With comments by Mark Chavaree, legal counsel for the Penobscot Nation; Jude Walsh, special assistant with the Office of Health Policy and Finance; Bob Morrissette, president of the Pharmacy Group of New England; and Joe Bruno, CEO of Community Pharmacies.
