Delaware State Representative Andria Bennett (D-DE-32) will lead a new Pharmacy Reimbursement Task Force to hold pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) accountable and ensure they lower drug prices. In an oped, she wrote that "we will be taking a deep dive into pharmacy benefit manager practices and reimbursements, where there have been concerns to both consumers and pharmacies."
"As chair of the task force, I’ll be leading the efforts to study pharmacy reimbursement practices in Delaware, and across the country. We owe it to the residents of our state to fight for their best interests, increasing access and affordability to needed medications. Our residents deserve to pocket any savings, not over-bloated, under-regulated big pharma middle men. And our residents certainly don’t deserve to be taken advantage of. I look forward to our continued efforts and discussion to that end."
