Large Employers Warm Up To Point-of-Sale Rebates

As the debate continues over the merits of overhauling the prescription drug rebate system, large employers — which traditionally have retained drug discounts that PBMs negotiate with manufacturers — appear to be searching for a different way forward.

“Employers struggle to reconcile the role of manufacturer rebates in pharmacy benefit management. With no meaningful alternatives to the rebate-driven contracting model, large employers have continued to implement point-of-sale (POS) rebate programs,” stated the Business Group on Health’s 2021 Large Employers’ Health Care Strategy and Plan Design Survey.
