It should be abundantly clear that APhA has several bones to pick with big pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs). These PBMs, operating under the guise of altruism, paint themselves as saints who work to lower prescription drug prices for the masses. Instead, they actively game the system by knocking out pharmacy competitors, reducing patient access to medicines and pharmacist services, and ripping off patients, employers, and taxpayers.

Actionable advocacy

I encourage all student pharmacists to take action by educating those around you about pertinent pharmacy issues, encouraging members of your APhA–ASP Chapter to e-mail their legislators, and backing the APhA–PAC to support elected officials and candidates who advocate for pharmacy issues.
