About Civica Over the past two decades, shortages of generic,
injectable medications critical to the lifesaving work of hospitals
in the United States have become commonplace. Approximately 200
medically necessary drugs are on the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration's shortage list. Manufacturing challenges and
predatory pricing are both the cause and result. Who suffers most?
Patients. Civica is a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization
established in 2018 by health systems and philanthropies to reduce
chronic generic drug shortages and related high prices in the
United States. Led by an experienced team of health care and
pharmaceutical industry leaders. Today, more than 50 health systems
have joined Civica. They represent over 1,200 hospitals and over 30
percent of all U.S. hospital beds. Civica has also begun to supply
the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs, the U.S. Department of
Defense, and the U.S. Strategic National Stockpile of essential
medicines. Civica is improving patient outcomes and reducing
healthcare costs by making strides to ensure patients and their
needs come first and that essential generic medications are
accessible and affordable. Since established, the #1 Policy for the
Civica team has been "Do What Is in the Best Interest of Patients."
Civica is launching a subsidiary to enter the Outpatient pharmacy
market partnering with Blue Cross Blue Shield with the goal of
reducing drug prices, especially high-cost generic drugs where
market forces are not working to control drug costs. To find out
