PBM Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
In the United States, a pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) is a third-party administrator of prescription drug programs for commercial health plans, self-insured employer plans, Medicare Part D plans, the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, and state government employee plans.
Samantha Liss for Health Care Dive mentioned how Express Scripts faces lawsuit alleging it overcharged Ohio public pension fund, "Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost is going after another pharmacy benefit manager in court. This time, Yost is alleging Express Scripts overcharged the Ohio Highway Patrol Retirement System, a public pension fund, and pocketed millions. Ohio has been cracking down on PBM practices, which led the state to ending the practice of spread pricing, a tactic that has become increasingly controversial. State lawmakers also mandated that the state move to one single PBM as an attempt to better safeguard state dollars, but it has yet to happen. The lawsuit is another step in pushing for more PBM transparency in Ohio."
