The nation’s only membership-based wholesale pharmacy is right down the road from Dallas and is paying big dividends for patients. ScriptCo is a Waco-based pharmacy whose only profits come from an annual membership for members, selling medications at cost to members with what are often significant savings.
Co-founders Dr. Mark McCormick and Zach Zeller began their careers selling medical supplies to surgeons and then moved into the pharmacy space, running their own retail pharmacies. But they soon became disenchanted with the industry. The costs were unnecessarily high, and it wasn’t easy to figure out why. Additionally, everyone was paying different prices for the same medications, and determining the price was tricky. “We saw gaping holes in the industry around access and transparency,” Zeller says.
