Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) Market Drivers and Restraints | CVS Health, Express Scripts, Catamaran, Prime Therapeutics, and OptumRX

A pharmacy benefit manager is an entity that offers educational programs and services to help out patients. They do so by lobbying with doctors and pharmacists so that they prescribe drugs in a proper manner in order to improve their effectiveness. In short, they help you to navigate the complex healthcare system beyond the doctor and pharmacist relationship.

A pharmacy benefit manager acts as an intermediary between insurers and other members of the healthcare industry. Owing to their size, they can effectively negotiate on large-sized customer contracts with both pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies to manage the best possible rates. When it comes to choosing a pharmacy benefit manager, companies are requested to opt for one with maximum outreach since they are in a better position to negotiate reimbursement rates for medications and patient care services.

Take care of mailing so that medications are delivered directly at the door of the patient
Ensure compliance on the part of patient when it comes to taking the prescribed medication
Process claims from pharmacies and patients
