Learn How PBMs Are Working for Patients
"If I didn’t have my medication, I probably wouldn’t be here… I’m grateful that my PBM fights to keep the costs of medication down and makes my medication affordable."

- Theresa, Patient living with high blood pressure
"Pharmacy benefit managers give patients like me a huge level of comfort by ensuring that our drugs are both accessible and affordable. With PBMs, I know that my medication is going to be affordable and cost the same amount every time I’m at the pharmacy."

– Santiago, Patient living with anxiety disorder
"My medications cost about $350/month but with the pharmacy benefit manager negotiating on my behalf, I pay $5… without my medication, I wouldn’t have much quality of life at all. My medication allows me to pursue my career and be who I really am inside."

– Brittany, Patient and mental health counselor
