Mail-service pharmacies will save Pennsylvania consumers, employers, unions, the state government, and other commercially-insured payers $ 2 billion in prescription drug costs over the next ten years, according to new research released by the Pharmaceutical Care Management Association (PCMA).

New legislation (PA HB 511/SB 201) would grant special protections for drugstores by prohibiting consumers from getting discounted prescriptions through mail-service pharmacies. If Pennsylvania were to enact this anti-mail-service-pharmacy legislation, prescription drug costs for fully-insured in-state health plan sponsors and their enrollees could increase by more than $ 570 million over the next ten years.

In this economy, consumers and payers need every cost saving tool they can get and mail-service pharmacy is at the top of the list, said PCMA President and CEO Mark Merritt. This bill is a prescription drug tax that will raise health care costs for small businesses, unions, government agencies, and consumers.
