2015-2016 Drug Benefit Report
2015-2016 Drug Benefit Report
Sponsored by Takeda Pharmaceuticals U.S.A., Inc.

PBMI conducted this year’s survey of U.S. employers in April of 2015. The survey was completed by 302 employers representing 16.3 million members.

The comprehensive survey instrument collected information on prescription drug plan design and utilization for prescription drugs dispensed through retail, mail order, and specialty pharmacy distribution channels. As in past years, the survey was updated to reflect marketplace trends, comments received from survey respondents, and feedback from PBMI members about the educational topics most important to them. New to the survey this year were questions about primary goals for managing the prescription drug benefit as well as questions on the effect of the ACA on the cost of employer health coverage and quality of prescription drug therapy.
