Welcome

Community Pharmacies of Indiana, Inc., ("CPI") was established in 1993 after a group of pharmacy owners met to discuss changing prescription drug plans in the state. One of CPI's main goals as an organization is to promote pharmacy as a profession and the role of the community retail pharmacy in the American concept of free enterprise by maintaining freedom of choice of pharmacy to all citizens of the state.

In addition, we have maintained vigilance in the administrative, legislative, and government affairs affecting the practice of retail pharmacy in the interest of the public welfare and to assure professional control of the pharmacy by pharmacists. To do all of this, CPI works closely with the Indiana General Assembly to ensure that the remaining community pharmacies in Indiana survive and thrive. We are the voice of community pharmacies in Indiana.

Nearly 165  independently-owned pharmacies are on CPI's membership list. Find a CPI member by clicking on the "Locate a Pharmacy" link above.
