In 2018 a small group of Maryland pharmacy owners realized that small business community pharmacies no longer had an official voice to be heard in the state legislature. As a response to that need, IPMD was formed.
Independent Pharmacies of Maryland was created for the purpose of strengthening the state's independent community pharmacies and giving them a platform to be recognized in Maryland's legislative negotiations.
The monopolistic and unfair trade practices of Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) are causing many of Maryland's independent community pharmacies to close their doors, which denies patients across our state access to affordable medications and healthcare.
Join or donate to IPMD and help ensure that local small business pharmacies have a voice in Maryland!
