On Dec. 10, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-0 that an Arkansas law regulating how PBMs and pharmacies interact could be enforced, and was not preempted by federal law.
With more than three dozen other states debating or passing such legislation, the ruling could have nationwide impact. The CEOs of national pharmacy organization were unanimous in hailing the decision.
In this episode, three guests discuss the case: Rep. Buddy Carter (R-Georgia); John Vinson, CEO of the Arkansas Pharmacists Association; and Scott Knoer, Executive Vice President and CEO of the American Pharmacists Association.
