Overview

The Employers’ Prescription for Affordable Drugs (EmployersRx) supports policies that would require PBMs to make pricing data available to payers and compel drug companies to report and justify price increases for some medications. EmployersRx also seeks to strengthen competition and remove barriers that stifle the development and use of generic drugs and biosimilars.
