Are there mail order services for prescriptions?

Pharmacy Benefit Managers (or PBMs) such as Express Scripts are mail order services for prescription drugs.

PBMs are usually third-party administrators, but can also be part of an integrated health care system, such as Kaiser or the VA. PBMs primarily handle the following items:

  • Processing and paying prescription drug claims
  • Developing and maintaining the drug formulary
  • Contracting with pharmacies
  • Negotiating discounts and rebates with drug manufacturers
If you have questions about if your insurance carrier has mail order services for prescription drugs, contact them directly using the information under your Overview page.
