PBMs ARE TAKING ACTION TO PROMOTE PATIENT ACCESS TO PRESCRIPTION DRUGS DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
During this time of public health emergency, PBMs know the importance of pharmacies remaining focused on providing patient care. PBMs believe there needs to be a balance between helping pharmacies manage the influx of COVID-19 related patient needs and continuing to serve employer, health plan, and government clients – including helping to prevent fraud, waste and abuse, and not neglect or inadvertently exacerbate other public health concerns, such as the opioid crisis.
Consistent with state and federal government agencies, pharmacies, and clients, many PBMs are limiting routine pharmacy audits, unless required by law or as a result of certain fraud, waste, and abuse investigations.
