    This is a bit of a long video, but it offers a good explanation of PBMs and their impact on the price of prescription drugs.

    PBMs are evil!

    PBMs have increasingly more control over what I am able to prescribe for my patients. In the overwhelmingly vast majority of cases where a health insurer denies coverage for a medication I deem (and thoroughly document) is medically necessary, the people making these decision are not even physicians! Your physician, not your health insurer, should be the person deciding what is in your best medical interests. Then you, the patient, should have the final say on whether you want to proceed with your physician’s medical opinion/advice.
