Check out video highlights from the event.

The PCMA Policy Forum took place on April 25th at the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C.

PCMA Vice President, Policy, Angela Banks talks with health policy expert Alex Brill about competition in the prescription drug marketplace and why this is the best way to reduce prescription drug costs.

The drug pricing debate in Washington has kicked back into high gear, and it is more contentious, convoluted and misguided than ever. Who’s on what team? Whose “turn” is next? And, most importantly, what is in the best interest of patients and taxpayers? These questions may sound rhetorical, but they’re questions that Congress should be asking.

Groundbreaking research by University of Chicago Economics Professor Casey Mulligan describes the services that pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) provide in the healthcare marketplace. . .
