Help Your Local Pharmacies
How Pharmacy Benefit Managers are Hurting the Community
Multi billion dollar companies are forcing local pharmacies out of business, while making your drug costs go up all so that they can rake in cash. Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) are meant to act as the middlemen to negotiate lower prices for consumers, but they scam the system to make more money for themselves with higher priced drugs. As a result, your prescriptions are costlier and, in some cases, your local pharmacy has to turn their patients away due to their prescription being too expensive to even fill.
