Offering Real-Time Pharmacy Benefit Tools
Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) serve 266 million Americans across 50 states and territories. And that’s why we’re doing everything we can to prevent drug shortages and offering real-time benefit tools for patients.
PBMs are working with health care stakeholders and across all levels of government to prevent drug shortages. PBMs support clinical guidance that balances our patients’ needs to stay home with the clinical appropriateness of supply for any drug, and the need to prevent future shortages as well.
PBMs are also helping in other ways. For instance, real-time benefit tools allow physicians to immediately view covered medications and the patient’s cost sharing. In addition, PBMs’ real-time benefit tools can help prescribers choose the most cost-effective medication and reduce patients’ out-of-pocket spending. These benefit tools can help prescribers, patients, and pharmacists quickly determine the right therapeutic alternative for each patient.
These are just some of the actions PBMs are taking during this difficult time in order to best serve the ever-changing needs of our communities. For more information, please click here.
