NCPA: Talk to Your Patients First Before the PBMs do!

If you don’t talk to your patients about Medicare enrollment, you can bet the PBMs and Big Insurance will. You can cut through their propaganda and help your patients choose the best plan for them by talking to them first. Let them know you’re happy to answer questions about their prescriptions, over-the-counter items, Medicare plans, and more. You are the best resource to increase awareness of PBMs and how they will try to influence the decisions your patients need to make about their health care.

The Medicare open enrollment period is underway now and runs through Dec. 7, so make sure to use our members-only “Talk to Your Pharmacist First” toolkit and Medicare resource guide to get the discussions started. You will find complimentary downloads for a printable flyer, bag stuffer, and a poster to help increase patient-pharmacist conversations on everything from side effects to which Part D plan to choose for 2023.
