Cost Savings & Rebates

Negotiating rebates on prescription drugs is one way PBMs work to bring down health care costs for patients like you. By negotiating with drug manufacturers, PBMs save an average of $962 per patient, per year.

Home Delivery

Mail-service pharmacies are safe, reliable, and help patients stick to their drug regimens. By expanding access to home delivery of prescription drugs, PBMs are helping reduce costs and improve access for patients.

Formularies

Formularies are lists of drugs that a health plan uses as part of its pharmacy benefit. These lists help patients avoid unsafe medications that may not interact well with other prescriptions, prevent expensive or ineffective drugs from being prescribed to patients, and improve patient outcomes by reducing physician or ER visits.
