CHC called on the Chief Executive Officers and Presidents of CVS Health, UnitedHealth Group, and Express Scripts Holding Company – three of the leading PBMs, who manage prescription drug benefits for 180 million Americans – to meet with the Caucus and discuss actions PBMs can take to ensure insulin is affordable to all Americans. PBMs help oversee the availability of insulin products under health insurance plans and at pharmacies by managing what drugs are placed on formularies, contracting with pharmacies, and negotiating rebates with manufacturers.
