A Columbus Dispatch article outlines the struggles Ohio Medicaid has experienced in trying to “rein in the middlemen in the prescription drug supply chain” – pharmacy benefit managers. Their year-long effort to replace outsider PBMs with a state-run PBM has met with skepticism from lawmakers.
“This is a train wreck of epic proportions that is about to occur,” said Sen. Bill Coley, R-West Chester.
MedBen Rx has seen first-hand how lack of PBM transparency results in higher drug costs… so we solved the problem by taking them out of the cost equation. Our pharmacy program eliminates the drug markups by focusing on the actual cost of a prescription – you pay what the pharmacy pays. As a result, MedBen Rx clients spend 14.8% less on average over other PBMs.
