NTEU Supports Bill to Lower FEHBP Drug Costs

Public Service

Public Service Recognition Week is here! Read a message from President Colleen M. Kelley and see how you can spread the word about PSRW.

 

NTEU strongly supports a bill introduced by Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.), which would lower the costs of prescription drugs and cut premiums for workers and retirees covered by the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP). 

Under current law, FEHBP health plans contract directly with pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) who operate as middlemen to negotiate prescription drug prices with drug companies and pharmacies on behalf of individual plans. While the purpose of contracting with PBMs was to control drug costs, there is little evidence this approach has been effective, said NTEU National President Colleen M. Kelley.

H.R. 2175, the FEHBP Prescription Drug Oversight & Cost Savings Act, would reform FEHBP drug-pricing and contracting requirements, provide the Office of Personnel Management with enhanced oversight and contracting authority and require PBMs to return any rebates, incentives or discounts from drug manufacturers to FEHBP.
