State Senator John H. Eichelberger, Jr. (R-Blair) has introduced legislation that will save the state billions of dollars in prescription drug costs for its public employees.  The bill modernizes the process for selecting and monitoring pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) contracts across the Commonwealth.  Under Eichelberger’s bill, public sector entities would be authorized to use specialized software and to require advanced bidding techniques to provide them with the most detailed comparison of bidders. The legislation would also provide for real-time, electronic auditing of the PBM’s invoices.
