Floridians are paying more and waiting longer for prescription medications due to the predatory practices of middle men called pharmacy benefit managers or PBMs. These PBM middle men were supposed to hold down health care costs, but, instead, they found a way to line their own pockets by forcing patients to the big box or mail-order pharmacies where they make the most money. And many patients are stuck driving long distances or waiting weeks for their medication -- in some cases with life-threatening consequences. It's time to put patients above profits and restore the free market so that health care works for Floridians instead of PBM middle men.

To fix Florida's broken PBM system, the Florida Pharmacy Association is calling for comprehensive reform legislation that:

  • 1 Eliminates the issue of steering where PBMs force patients to go to pharmacies where they will make the most profit.
  • 2 Prohibits discriminatory pricing practices where some pharmacies are paid more than 40 times what other pharmacies are paid for the same drug.
  • 3 Creates proper accountability, oversight, and transparency requirements so that policymakers can ensure that PBMs are putting patients above profits.

THE FLORIDA PHARMACY ASSOCIATION URGES YOU TO MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD AND LET STATE LEGISLATORS KNOW THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. NOW IS THE TIME FOR ACTION.
