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
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.
