Within a few months of contracting with AmerisourceBergen's Hospice Pharmacy Services, our costs dropped significantly per homecare patient day, and this amount included pharmacist oversight and an extra charge by our pharmacists for non-city delivery. This resulted in a savings of $100,000 in the first year. The final positive change is that our local pharmacies actually started making a narrow margin on drugs they filled for hospice patients instead of losing money occasionally
