Abstract
Prescription medication costs continue to increase and draw corresponding media attention. Although scrutiny of medication costs often involve the manufacturers, wholesalers and pharmacies, the pharmacy benefits management companies (PBMs) are not commonly evaluated. Given the heightened attention to transparency within the health care system, PBM transparency and evidence-based medicine therapeutic changes may provide cost savings to hospitals affording additional resources to fund medication therapy management (MTM) programs.
