The Pharmaceutical Care Management Association is the association representing Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) working to lower prescription drug costs for patients and payers across the country. PBMs administer prescription drug plans for more than 270 million Americans who have health insurance from a variety of sponsors including: commercial health plans, self-insured employer plans, union plans, Medicare Part D plans, the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), state government employee plans, managed Medicaid plans, and others.
Today, health care plans hire PBMs to secure lower costs for prescription drugs, passing the savings directly to patients. PBMs are your first line of defense against rising prescription drug costs. They work to ensure lower costs and better health outcomes through affordable access to medicines you need.
