Cigna CEO David Cordani doesn't see the Trump administration's new proposal to cut Medicare pharmacy benefit rebates as a threat to its growth, as it embarks on integrating its newly acquired PBM firm Express Scripts.
The U.S. government's proposal to eliminate rebates that pharmacy benefit managers receive from drugmakers will not have a meaningful impact on growth, and does not affect the commercial market, Cigna Corp Chief Executive Officer David Cordani said on Friday. Investors are worried that Cigna, which closed its $52 billion acquisition of PBM Express Scripts in December, could be hurt by the Trump administration's proposal targeting after-market discounts that middlemen in the pharmaceutical supply chain have received for decades.
"The proposed rebate rule will not have a meaningful impact on our growth or earnings trajectory," Cordani said on a conference call with analysts. The U.S. government on Thursday proposed a rule to end a decades-old system of after-market discounts called rebates that pharmacy benefit managers receive from drugmakers, a potential blow to companies like Cigna's Express Scripts, which act as middlemen in the pharmaceuticals supply chain.

The Trump administration's new proposals would ban what it calls "backdoor rebates," as it seeks to lower drug costs for consumers at the pharmacy counter. The administration says those confidential rebates have led to a "perverse incentive" for drug makers to make list prices on drugs artificially high. HHS Secretary Alex Azar says in a statement that the goal would be to create a system that prioritizes savings for patients.
