Founded in 1986, Golden State Medical Supply (GSMS) is the leading provider of generic pharmaceuticals for our service men and women in uniform and their families, military veterans and the Indian Health Services population.
We have deep and longstanding relationships with the Veterans Administration and Department of Defense, says GSMS CEO Benjamin Hall.
When it comes to safety, quality and compliance, our team takes pride in its relentless commitment to excellence.
With a product catalog representing over 2,000 National Drug Codes—including prescription oral solids, topicals, ophthalmics, complex injectables and transdermals—GSMS shipped nearly 30 million units to over 18 million beneficiaries last year, generating more than $100 million in U.S. health care savings.
U.S. military personnel receive their prescription drugs via the TRICARE program, which generally substitutes generics for brand-name drugs when possible.
We consider it a solemn promise to ensure that the troops who so bravely serve our nation have access to quality, affordable medicine, says Hall.
