ARKANSAS PHARMACIES FIGHT BACK
For Years Arkansas family and independent pharmacists
have suffered at the hands of Pharmacy Benefit Managers.
They are now taking the fight to the PBMs.
PBMs are the middlemen between the pharmacies and the health insurance companies. These PBMs also own and operate the big brand pharmacies, and so they are motivated to eliminate small business pharmacies. To do so, they force independent pharmacies to fill prescriptions for less in insurance reimbursements than the pills cost them.
