What is a PBM Reverse Auction and How Does It Work?

A PBM (Pharmacy Benefit Manager) reverse auction is a competitive, transparent bidding process that a state uses to select an entity to manage the state’s prescription drug program.   Agencies select PBMs without any real understanding of prescription drug costs or have any way to compare them. This absence of transparent price-based competition allows PBMs to make high profits.
