2016 Drug Benefit Report
2016 Drug Benefit Report
Sponsored by Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc.

PBMI conducted this year’s survey of U.S. employers in April of 2016. The survey was completed by 337 benefit leaders representing employers of an estimated 12.3 million covered lives.

Design of the drug benefit has become more complex since the first drug benefit report published by PBMI. With this in mind, PBMI significantly modified the survey instrument this year to reflect current drug benefit management practices, opportunities, and concerns. A major shift for 2016 was to eliminate much of the cost trend information. The calculation of trend varies considerably by PBMs and health plans. This "apples to oranges" issue is problematic.
