PBM Scrutiny: What's all the fuss about?
Ten years ago, the average US citizen didn't know what a PBM was. Today, they're under fire with public scrutiny from politicians, legislations and news outlets. Learn more about who PBMs really are and how the misalignment of the traditional PBM model has caused issues for plan sponsors, retailers and patients alike.

In this webinar, Josh Golden (Senior Vice President of Strategy, Capital Rx) will cover the following topics of interest:

  • What is the PBM’s role within the drug supply chain?
  • Where does a typical PBM’s profit come from? How do these profit sources create conflicts of interest?
  • What are the five biggest problems with most self-insured PBM deals? How do you solve them?
  • What alternatives exist to the traditional PBM model? What are their advantages and disadvantages?
