PBM Reform and Our Nation’s Pharmacies

Pass PBM Reform NOW!

The time is NOW to make the final push on PBM reform, and we need your help to make it happen. Join us in reaching out to your legislators to ask for their support on:

S. 2973/H.R. 5378, the Modernizing and Ensuring PBM Accountability (MEPA) Act

– Bans spread pricing in Medicaid managed care by requiring fair and transparent reimbursement to pharmacies and saves over $1 billion.

S. 3430, Better Mental Health Care, Lower-Cost Drugs, and Extenders Act 

– Includes the No PBMs Act which requires CMS to define reasonable and relevant contract terms in Medicare.

S. 127, the Pharmacy Benefit Manager Transparency Act 

– Prohibits PBMs from arbitrarily, unfairly, or deceptively clawing back reimbursement payments or increasing fees or lowering reimbursements to pharmacies to offset changes to federally funded health plans.

There is strong support in the 118th Congress on PBM reform with both S. 2973 and S. 3430 passing out of the Senate Finance Committee and S. 127 passing out of the Senate Commerce Committee. Additionally, The Lower Costs, More Transparency Act passed the House of Representatives with bipartisan support 320 –71.

Take action today, by using our pre-written, editable advocacy alert to ask your legislators to thank them for the progress made on PBM reform and express the importance of enacting such reform into law.

Thank you for taking action! Your participation helps advance pharmacy for the betterment of the profession, your patients, and your communities.
