Out-of-Pocket Costs for Diabetes Medicine Eliminated

CVS Health recently announced a new solution eliminating member out-of-pocket costs associated with all diabetes prescription medications, including insulin, according to a news release.

Offered through the company’s pharmacy benefit manager (PBM), CVS Caremark, RxZERO enables employers and health plan sponsors to leverage formulary and plan design approaches which will offer all categories of diabetes medications at zero dollars out-of-pocket for their members without raising costs for the plan sponsor or increasing premiums or deductibles for all plan members.

“Eliminating out-of-pocket costs for diabetes medications ensures long-term affordability, improves adherence, and most importantly, puts patients on the path to better health,” says Troyen A. Brennen, MD, chief medical officer, CVS Health. “A person living with diabetes is required to take many tasks to manage their condition annually. Unfortunately, that can include making difficult decisions about whether they can afford their medications and fill their prescriptions.”
