PBMs Provide User-Friendly Services for Patients
Receiving timely, effective health care has never been more important or, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, more challenging. Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) have been working to support more than 266 million patients access their prescription medications at a lower cost and in a transparent, easy-to-navigate fashion. Even as health care is administered remotely, PBMs are offering a variety of user-friendly services and tools to assist patients and ensure they receive the same high-quality care they have come to expect.
These tools have covered a wide range of populations and health care topics. PBMs have built tools that allow physicians to immediately view covered medications and the patient’s cost sharing, helping them to choose cost-effective medications that reduce patients’ expenses. PBMs have also made real-time prescription benefit technology more accessible, informing patients about a medication’s formulary placement and cost sharing, helping them choose the safest, most cost-effective drugs and avoid negative drug interactions.
Finally, as many patients are concerned about the COVID-19 risks public spaces pose, PBM’s mail-service pharmacies are more critical than ever. PBMs are shipping hundreds of millions of prescriptions each year to patients without them ever having to leave their homes.
