All Member Meeting
The Pharmacy Benefit space is evolving fast and expectations are changing. There are more chronic illnesses than ever before. There is a greater demand for medications, and more expensive drugs are coming to market, driving a need for new solutions to address affordability and accessibility. Join the BHC in its continued exploration of Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs), their operations, and expanding options to drive greater value.


Over the BHC’s 10-year partnership with Express Scripts (ESI), the Pharmacy Management Initiative (PMI) has highlighted the work of ESI to support purchasers in their strategic planning, data analytics, and employee engagement. At the next Member Meeting, we are excited to expand this understanding and hear from two additional PBM players, OptumRx and CVS Health, as they describe their business models, contracting options, and innovative solutions to motivate change.
