How Pharmacy Benefit Managers Support Patients During the Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the ways we approach and provide health care, says Dr. Sree Chaguturu, the Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of CVS Caremark, on a recent episode of the Pharmacy Benefit Podcast. Dr. Chaguturu describes the role of Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) in combating the coronavirus pandemic, including the promotion of mail-service pharmacies to help maintain social distancing guidelines, 90-day refills of chronic diseases medications to reduce pharmacy visits, and maintaining the prescription drug supply chain.
Through these actions, PBMs are ensuring continuity of patient care and combating the COVID-19 pandemic. As the vaccine rollout continues and the fight against the pandemic enters its next stage, PBMs will always advocate on behalf of patients, keeping them safe and healthy.
