PCMA on IOM Essential Health Benefits Report: Employers and Special Interests Will Spar Over Costly Prescription Drug Mandates
Date:10/7/2011

cent were interested in knowing how much drugstores are paid.

Small businesses disagree with the drugstore and drug company lobbies on the following issues:

* Small businesses want access to plans that exclude expensive drugstores from their networks. 61 percent say it is a good idea to "allow employers to choose lower cost plans that exclude the most expensive drugstores from their coverage network."

* Seventy-four percent oppose mandating across-the-board, low co-pays for high-priced drugs. By a 2-1 margin, small businesses think it would be better to require drug companies to offer case-by-case price discounts to those in need.

* Small businesses want to hold drugstores accountable. 88 percent say it is a good idea to "allow plans to audit drugstores that appear to be overcharging."

* Small businesses want access to plans that encourage delivery of prescription drugs through the mail. 79 percent say it is a good idea to "allow plans to offer discounts that encourage employees to get prescriptions by mail."

A new PCMA ad campaign highlights that small businesses oppose regulations that would allow special interests to raise prescription drug costs.  Click here to view the ad.
