New House, Senate Bills Add to Accumulating PBM Reform Proposals

Although several PBM reform measures are already circulating in Congress, lawmakers recently added even more legislative proposals to the fray. The Senate Finance Committee released a discussion draft that would introduce a host of financial reporting requirements for PBMs contracted by Medicare Part D plans, and then announced it would mark up a package including that measure and other PBM reforms later this month. And, following a markup, the House Education and Workforce Committee advanced a spate of bills focused on promoting transparency for PBMs, health care providers and insurers.

A Capitol Hill insider tells AIS Health, a division of MMIT, that how exactly these measures will fit into a final package of PBM reform legislation remains to be seen, although a few possible scenarios are beginning to come into view.
