“Follow the Scripts – Trends in ERISA Litigation against PBMs,” Bloomberg Law

In this article, Jenner & Block Special Counsel Michael T. Graham and Associate Christopher M. Sheehan explain that there is a growing trend of ERISA-related cases against pharmacy benefit managers, or PBMs.  Plaintiffs’ law firms believe that the way in which PBMs set co-pays and receive rebates from network pharmacies is at least partly to blame for the rising cost of drugs in the United States.  The authors look at recent ERISA lawsuits against PBMs, the success of the claims, and issues those litigants encountered.
