    Most physician dispensing is facilitated by a third party billing/supply company. Prior to reforms these companies (notably the vanguard one in Florida) marketed physician dispensing as a profit center income stream. I find it suspicious that in most of the states reviewed the income lost on the price per pill downgrade was made up by dispensing the same two drugs in higher dosages. Call me suspicious but I can see the third party billers hand in marketing another profit center strategy.
