Middlemen are often standing between patients and their medicines.
Insurance companies use pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) to decide if medicines get covered and what people pay. Just three PBMs control 80% of the prescription drug market, and last year, they denied coverage to more than 1,150 medicines.
When people are sick, they should be fighting their illness, not middlemen.
It's time to lower costs for patients by holding middlemen accountable.
