Tackling Rising Pharmacy Costs | EHIR Pharmacy Benefits: Pushing Towards Transparency and Savings

Rising pharmacy costs are a significant concern for organizations striving to provide comprehensive employee benefits. At AffirmedRx, we understand these challenges. As a Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to building trust through transparency, we are committed to helping employers navigate pharmacy benefits so every detail is clear and every decision is made with confidence.

Rising Pharmacy Costs: A Pressing Concern

Recent data from the Employer Health Innovations Roundtable (EHIR) underscores the urgency of this issue. According to the newly published report, 72% of survey respondents experienced a pharmacy cost trend increase of 4% or more over the past two years. This cost surge is prompting many organizations to reconsider their pharmacy benefit management (PBM) strategies. In fact, 51% of EHIR member survey respondents are contemplating changing their PBM or adding another pharmacy vendor for 2025 or 2026.

Transparency: The Key to Cost Control

One of the core issues identified by employers is the lack of transparency in what drives these escalating costs. Without a clear understanding of the factors at play, it’s challenging for organizations to make informed decisions that can effectively manage and mitigate these expenses.
