Generic medicines are often a low-cost alternative to brand-name drugs, but in recent years, the price of some generics has increased substantially, raising costs for health plans and consumers. High out-of-pocket costs have forced some consumers to make painful trade-offs, such as cutting back on groceries or putting their health at risk by rationing their medicine or worse – leaving it at the pharmacy counter because they simply can’t afford it.
CivicaScript and its members are intent on addressing that problem.
CivicaScript was created in 2020 in partnership with Civica and numerous Blue Cross Blue Shield organizations to bring affordable versions of common but high-priced generic medicines to market. Our research showed that we could manufacture and distribute quality generic medicines for a fraction of the price many consumers currently pay.
We are a statutory public benefit company that is committed to the principles of providing affordable generic medications in a manner that promotes the social welfare and health of the community. CivicaScript is a sister company to Civica, Inc. (Civica Rx), which was created in 2018 as a nonprofit public asset to help prevent chronic shortages of hospital-based medicines — and the price spikes that often accompany them.
Everyone deserves access to the medicines they need to stay healthy.
