Patients Overpay for Prescriptions 23% of the Time

“The practice of charging a copay that is higher than the full cost of a drug is called a ‘clawback’ … After taking your insurance card, your pharmacist says you owe a $10 copay, which you pay, assuming that the drug costs more than $10 and your insurance is covering the rest. But unbeknownst to you, the drug actually cost only $7, and the PBM claws back the extra $3. Had you paid out-of-pocket, you would have gotten a better deal.” Kaiser Health News
