About the PBM Policy Forum 2017

In this era of high drug prices and expensive specialty medicines, the role of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) has never been more important. PBMs provide employers, unions, public programs, physicians, and consumers with cost savings strategies and clinical services that are essential to the affordability and efficacy of prescription drugs.

Typically, PBMs reduce drug costs by 30 percent for more than 266 million Americans enrolled in private and public plans, most notably Medicare Part D.

PCMA’s annual PBM Policy Forum brings together the private and public sector to deliver important insights into the prescription drug marketplace, and highlight the role of PBMs in managing prescription drug costs and improving health outcomes.
