Virtual McKesson ideaShare welcomes all independent pharmacies and their staff.

As the nation’s most accessible healthcare provider, independent pharmacies continue to step up and champion their community’s health. Uniting around response and prevention efforts, learning new ways to serve patients and growing the pharmacy’s role to meet evolving needs should be top priority at this time.

As public health safety measures related to COVID-19 continue to extend, we have made the decision to convert our live event that was scheduled for June 23–27 in San Diego into a virtual experience this summer.

McKesson ideaShare will cost $99 for the first attendee at each pharmacy location, and $49 for each additional attendee per pharmacy location who wants to earn continuing education (CE) credit.

2021 Rebate FAQs

The ideaShare rebate is 2% of total OneStop purchases, not to exceed $4,000 in total payment.

Eligible customers will have the opportunity to earn the rebate for the six-month period from October through March provided that in no event will the rebate exceed $4,000.

The first 2,250 retail independent small/medium chain segment stores — and alternate site stores — that register for and attend the two General Sessions at 2021 McKesson ideaShare are eligible to receive the ideaShare rebate. Attendance can be on live event days or on-demand by September 30.

 

Each location counts as one store, meaning each location needs to register for McKesson ideaShare with a separate email account to claim the rebate. Alternate site accounts include long-term care, home health, hospice, assisted living, skilled nursing and combo facilities.

Required sessions are the two General Sessions focused on Health Mart® (10 a.m. CT, September 14) and Public Policy (10 a.m. CT, September 15).

Alternate site accounts include long-term care, home health, hospice, assisted living, skilled nursing and combo facilities.

The ideaShare rebate will be paid directly to eligible stores (instead of through the buying groups) via credit memo.

Rebates will be paid on the 20th of every month, starting with October purchases that will be paid on November 20.

Reporting detailing the ideaShare rebate will be made available to you.

Only OneStop rebate eligible items will be used to calculate the ideaShare rebate.
