PBMs are Pushing for more Home Deliveries and TeleMedicine
Decades ago, Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) perfected home delivery of medicines for patients. While the service has always been a convenient and lower-cost option for patients to access their prescription drugs, home delivery has never been as important as it’s right now. That’s why PBMs are enhancing home delivery services, as well as working with network pharmacies to provide local delivery options for consumers.
PBMs are collaborating with health plans and pharmacies to remove potential barriers to getting prescriptions filled by people staying at home and social distancing. Specifically, PBMs are encouraging early prescription drug refills, helping patients sign-up for home delivery, and adjusting utilization management programs to minimize potential access delays. PBMs also are advising patients to adhere to guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
As we all come together to find a new normal in this age of COVID-19, it is important to understand that PBMs are – and will be – working to help patients lead healthier and happier lives. For more information regarding home deliveries, visit here.
