During this public health emergency, PBMs are committed to helping patients. PBMs promote the following principles for protecting patient access and managing against supply chain disruptions.
- PBMs, other drug supply chain stakeholders, and federal, state, and local government partners should work together to sustain access to care for patients and prevent drug shortages.
- PBMs recommend multiple approaches to ensure patients have access to their prescription drugs now and in the days ahead, by balancing convenient, reliable access – such as home delivery and having appropriate supply on hand – with the potential for drug shortages.
- PBMs recommend guidance from federal, state, and local government agencies that balance patients’ need to stay at home, the clinical appropriateness of supply for any given drug, and the need to prevent future drug shortages.
