New Podcast: Hope for Pharmacists and Patients

Apr 19, 2021

Join Beth Mitchell, Senior Director of Government Affairs, and Ashley O’Sullivan, Senior Manager of Policy and Legislation, as they share how the AmerisourceBergen Government Affairs & Policy team advocates for pharmacists, pharmacies, and patients before state and federal governmental representatives. In this podcast, Beth, Ashley, and Paul explore a variety of topics, such as the unprecedented and unanimous SCOTUS decision in the Rutledge v. Pharmaceutical Care Management Association (PCMA) case, where SCOTUS ruled that the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) does not preempt an Arkansas state law that states pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) may not reimburse at less than acquisition cost, which has led to the introduction of over 50 new state bills regarding PBM regulation and more than 100 new bills related to drug pricing.
