Smaller PBMs Beat Big Firms in Customer Satisfaction

Plan sponsors’ overall satisfaction with their PBMs increased from 8.0 on a 1-10 scale in 2020 to 8.2 in 2021, according to Pharmaceutical Strategies Group’s 2021 Pharmacy Benefit Manager Customer Satisfaction Report. Based on surveys completed by 291 plan sponsors who provide pharmacy benefits to their employees, the report found that PBMs with 20 million or fewer members tend to have higher satisfaction ratings than larger PBMs. Average satisfaction was highest for PBMs’ opioid management programs, while gene therapy financial protection programs rated the lowest and only 13% of the respondents used such programs. Among PBMs with more than 20 million members, MedImpact scored the highest overall satisfaction rate (8.5).
