Stop PBM Abuses
Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) are mega-billion-dollar middlemen corporations that have quietly become a dominant and monopolistic part of our health care system.
Hired by insurance companies and the government to manage drug benefits, PBMs have the power to negotiate drug costs, determine what drugs will be included on plan formularies, and how those drugs are dispensed. PBMs claim to be working to lower drug costs, but year after year, patients continue to pay more.
PBMs have become too big, opaque, and monopolistic in our health care system. Congress must take steps to stop PBM abuses by introducing greater transparency, stopping their nickel-and-diming fee structures that have pushed drug prices higher and higher, and requiring them to allow patients to receive medications at the pharmacy of their choice.
PBMs aren’t who they say they are. In fact, they stand behind some of the worst abuses in our health care system. Tell your elected officials it’s time to stop PBM abuse and protect local cancer care!
