PBMs administer prescription drug plans for more than 266 million Americans. With the costs and complexity of specialty drug treatments rising, PBMs offer a number of services designed to improve the quality of care for patients across the nation while managing overall costs to the health care system. To encourage complete coordination across the continuum of patient care, payers depend on PBMs’ utilization management tools, including the use of specialty pharmacies, to ensure that the value of therapy is optimized, at the most reasonable costs possible.
