Aimed Alliance Op-Ed Featured in Real Clear Health Discussing Pharmacy Benefit Managers


Real Clear Health has published an op-ed by Aimed Alliance’s Executive Director Stacey L. Worthy. The op-ed discusses pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) practices of nonmedical switching, the practice of forcing patients who are well managed on a therapy to take a less costly and possibly less effective drug for nonmedical reasons. The op-ed calls on policies that will limit insurers’ ability to force nonmedical switching, ensure full transparency of covered medications in the plans formulary, and allow patients to continue treatment unless there is a medical reason to change the medications.
