Share Article

Direct Pharmacy Service Inc. (DPSI) has executed a long-term lease agreement with the Seminole Tribe of Florida where they utilize a 35,000 square foot mail order pharmacy facility located on the Seminole Indian Reservation in Hollywood, FL. This move serves as part of the company’s plan to expand its operational capacity. DPSI provides mail order pharmacy service to employer groups and is a certified Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) and member of the Florida Regional Minority Business Development Council.

The Hollywood, Florida location features a 35,000 square foot mail order pharmacy with employees in customer service, pharmacy and operations support. Customers of DPSI are provided with a full range of services, including a 24-hour pharmacist, an interactive voice response (IVR) system to obtain refills, and customer service to provide patients with prescription and account information around the clock.

DPSI possesses the Optifill high-capacity, state-of-the-art mail order pharmacy equipment designed to fulfill 40,000 prescriptions per day and has acquired the operation of a successful, drive-through pharmacy which currently serves the Seminole residents in the surrounding area. To better serve customers and clients, DPSI has expanded their fulfillment operations to include South Florida. This operational enhancement is necessary due to an increased demand for their mail order pharmacy services resulting from the alliances that DPSI has with major prescription benefit management companies.

With this latest development, DPSI has catapulted itself to the forefront of the growing mail order pharmacy sector. With lower overhead costs, bulk purchasing and fewer dispensing errors, mail order pharmacy can provide cost savings of 10-40% over traditional brick and mortar pharmacies. Corporations nationwide are really beginning to catch on to this growing trend in an effort to save on their employee benefit costs.

Mail order pharmacy translates into savings for businesses and consumers alike. Patients with chronic health conditions requiring monthly medications benefit tremendously from the ability to obtain a three month supply for one co-payment versus the 30-day supply provided by most retail outlets.

Mail order pharmacies also offer ease and convenience to consumers purchasing prescriptions. For patients, accessing the services of DPSI is easy. First, a member or physician submits a prescription to the DPSI Mail Order Pharmacy for up to a 90-day medication supply via fax, mail or phone. Then, the prescription information is entered into the computer system, processed and the prescription is filled. Finally, the prescription is packaged and shipped to the patient.

Lanham, Maryland based DPSI, a privately held company, provides mail order prescription benefit services to members of large and small employer groups such as federal, state, and local governments; health plans, and national and local corporations. By offering efficient and accurate home delivery of prescriptions, the company is a cost effective, safe, and convenient alternative to retail pharmacies. The company is a member of the Florida Regional Minority Business Development Council and holds certification as a Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB) under the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) guidelines. The company holds certifications as a Minority/Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (MBE/DBE) within the states of Maryland and Tennessee and is an MBE member of the National Minority Supplier Development Council.
