Join Coalition to Protect Patient Access to Compounded Medications
As you may have heard, in a series of surprise moves earlier this month, PBMs and insurance companies, including Express Scripts, Catamaran, Optum, United HealthCare, and BCBS of various states, announced that access to compounded medicines for thousands of people is in jeopardy. Unless employers and plan sponsors act swiftly to provide for continued coverage AND to hold PBMs and insurance companies responsible for truly managing the prescription benefit instead of arbitrarily slashing it, thousands of compounded prescription medicines will cease to be covered. Additionally, their actions will increase patients’ out-of-pocket costs for critical medications, while also limiting doctors’ ability to prescribe the medicines that are best for their patients.
