    Kentucky launches probe into drug overcharges by pharmacy benefit managers

    Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear said on Thursday he had launched an investigation into allegations that pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) had overcharged state health insurance programs for drugs and discriminated against independent pharmacies. The investigation comes against the backdrop of widespread criticism of rising costs of prescription medicines in the United States, with PBMs, middlemen who negotiate prices for employers and health insurers, coming under intense scrutiny. Ohio's attorney general earlier this week sued UnitedHealth Group's OptumRx unit, which houses the largest U.S. health insurer's PBM business, to recover nearly $16 million in prescription drug overcharges.

    UnitedHealth Pivots Before Trump Forces the Issue

    UnitedHealth Group Inc., the largest U.S. health insurer, announced Tuesday that its pharmacy-benefit management arm OptumRX will mandate that all new employer health-plan clients pass the drug discounts it obtains for them directly to plan participants. That’s a big shift from the current system, under which OptumRX and other PBMs negotiate prices with drugmakers and hand the resulting rebate checks to clients to use as they wish. PBMs profit from this arrangement, and have an incentive to favor heavily rebated drugs. UnitedHealth’s new policy means lower drug costs for more people. It smartly preempts Trump administration efforts to reform rebates, and shows that the industry can make needed change ahead of pushes for an even bigger government-led overhaul of the way they do business.

    UnitedHealth to Require Drug Rebates Go to Consumers

    UnitedHealth Group Inc. said it would significantly expand a change to how it handles rebates from drugmakers by requiring new employer clients to pass them on to people who take the medications. The move will apply to employers that sign new contracts after Jan. 1, 2020, but UnitedHealth will grandfather in existing clients that chose a different setup. The new shift will involve employers that begin using UnitedHealth’s pharmacy-benefit manager, OptumRx, including those that are self-insured, which is the vast majority of large companies.
