The country’s largest drug distributor, like several of its competitors, remains under fire for its alleged role in America’s destructive opioid epidemic, as plaintiffs and prosecutors accuse it of hiding flaws in its supply chain that made it too easy for doctors to overprescribe and patients to abuse the drugs. In part as a result of a recent settlement with several states, McKesson reported a $4.5 billion loss for the fiscal year that ended in March 2021. After taking charge as a CDC-appointed centralized distributor for COVID vaccines in the U.S., McKesson distributed about 246 million doses as of December 2021. McKesson’s oncology technology business, Ontada, joined MYLUNG to advance precision medicine for lung cancer patients.
