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.
