Independent Pharmacies are GOOD for Patients! Support the FAIR MEDS ACT.

Here's how you can help us help you!

Pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) are third-party companies that act as middlemen between your insurance provider and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

Here in Alabama, the practices of large PBMs threaten the existence of community pharmacies and stifle patient choice and access to care. They also drive up costs for patients, taxpayers, and employers.

We're standing up for our patients this legislative session by supporting the FAIR MEDS ACT. This bill will protect:

  • Fair and transparent index-based drug pricing + fair dispensing fee for payors, patients, and pharmacies
  • Patient choice of and access to community pharmacies
  • Pharmacist freedom to communicate with their patients without PBM restrictions
  • Prohibiting point of sale, retroactive, and credentialing fees
  • Increased DOI oversight; and
  • Transparency and other protections for Alabama employers

The number one thing you can do to make your pharmacy experience better is to contact your state representative and senator and urge them to cosponsor and support the FAIR MEDS ACT. Visit and use their easy search tool to find and contact your representatives.
