Pennsylvania’s Auditor General takes on prescription drug “middlemen” in new report

Auditor General Eugene DePasquale today released a special report on the role of the “middlemen” between pharmaceutical companies, insurance providers and pharmacists who fill customers’ prescriptions.

Standing in front of the pharmacy counter at an independent retailer in Lancaster County, DePasquale cited his report that shows the state’s Medicaid program paid $2.8 billion in 2017 to PBMs, which is a 100 percent increase since 2013.
