Ama Policy

Pharmacy Benefit Risk-Sharing by Physicians H-285.930

Risk—Physicians Taking

Our AMA: (1) opposes the imposition of mandatory pharmacy benefit risk-sharing on physicians and physician groups by health plans and other third party payers; and (2) urges physicians and physician groups to seek actuarial, contracting, and legal advice prior to entering into any voluntary agreement to accept or share pharmacy risk.
