As the coronavirus takes hold in the United States and front-line health care providers are hard-pressed to treat those who are sick, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), along with health insurers, are working to help patients whether the pandemic.
PBMs across the board are helping patients obtain their essential medications, and supporting plan sponsors who want to waive treatment costs associated with COVID-19 care. A number of PBMs are doing more. For example, one PBM and health plan are offering an early intervention screening tool to help customers and members understand their personal risks for COVID-19.
While this is a difficult and unprecedented time for everyone, PBMs are working to ensure that 266 million patients are receiving the same level of service at home as they would receive at inpatient centers.
