Consumers and Taxpayers Beware!
PUTT is dedicated to ensuring that the patients we serve have access to the best possible care without interference from Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs).
Most Americans only know PBMs as the logo on their prescription drug plan card. While there are many PBMs, most prescription plans are managed by only 3 companies: CVS Caremark, Express Scripts and OptumRx. PBMs look and act like insurance companies for prescription drugs, but are in fact unregulated middlemen between patients, pharmacies and drugmakers.
Attention Employers, Unions and the Government:
At a time when the three largest PBMs hold nearly 80% of the market, the concept of a transparent, "pass through" PBM that saves you money might seem "too good to be true." We're here to tell you that it's not.
Transparent PBMs, brokers and health plan consultants DO exist and make "pass through" pricing work for everyone - patients, employers, insurance companies - while still turning a respectable profit.
