How PBMs Control Prices and What Employers Can Do About It

View Agenda

Event Description

Employers are facing unprecedented times in health care and pharmacy benefits. As plan fiduciaries, their responsibilities are in the spotlight. New legislation has already passed, with more potentially on the horizon as the Senate finance committee continues to uncover the truth about how PBMs control the market and flow of money. What are the critical strategies employers need to implement, now and in the future? Does the entire system need a reboot? Should the government intervene? How can we stop the madness?

At this forum, you will learn about:

  • Strategies to find the hidden arrangements and misaligned incentives in your PBM contract that benefit other entities at the expense of your organization
  • The latest updates on federal and state level legislation and litigation concerning PBMs, and the PBM response
  • How to implement evidenced-based pharmacy benefit programs
  • Cost-shifting vs. innovation in the proposed models for covering high-cost cell and gene therapies
  • The truth behind how copay accumulator and maximizer programs unfairly transfer resources from sick patients to healthy people and may even be harmful to patients

According to MBGH’s 2023 Employer Health Benefits Survey, 81% of employers feel that market-based AND government reform is needed to make the pharmacy drug market competitive.

This program is available both in-person and virtually.
