About PBMs
PBMs are responsible for processing prescriptions for corporations or insurance companies. Earlier, their major role was administration and negotiation with drug pharmacies and manufacturers to get rebates on drug prices. Now they have evolved into entities taking over the drug benefit portion of health plans in the US. Recent healthcare reforms in the US have contributed significantly to increase their area of expertise. Increase in costs of drugs and other healthcare services has made PBM's services more desirable. PBMs act as an intermediary between the payer and other entities in a healthcare system. They generate revenue through service fees they charge from large customer contracts for activities such as operating mail-order pharmacies, processing prescriptions, and negotiating with drug manufacturers and pharmacies.

Technavio's analysts forecast the PBM market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 7.16% during 2014-2019.
