PBM Rebate Audits: Securing the full value of manufacturer discounts

Presenters: Derek Frye, Audit and Compliance Practice Leader; Craig Oberg, Managing Consultant, Key Markets


PBM payments to clients from manufacturer rebate contracts have increased dramatically over the past few years. Some clients are experiencing a 30% increase in rebate payments year over year, and minimum rebate guarantees are being exceeded by up to 50%. For some clients, rebates are the number one contributing factor in reducing prescription costs, providing more savings than member cost-share, network discounts, or utilization control programs. These changes make a Rebate Audit essential to your annual PBM oversight plan. By participating in this webinar you will gain a clearer understanding of the following:

  • The history of rebates and the reason for increases over the past few years

  • How rebate payments are calculated and how the rebate audit process occurs

  • If your PBM contract allows for a rebate audit, and how to change it if it doesn’t

  • Differences between rebate audits and rebate validations

  • Key indicators to determine if you need a rebate audit and when to start

  • Relevant findings from past audits and the value delivered to clients
