Discount Cards, Cost-Plus Pharmacies, and PBMs: Trends, Controversies, and Outlook (NEW Live Video Webinar)

Dr. Adam J. Fein, CEO of Drug Channels Institute (DCI) and the author of Drug Channels, invites you to join him for a new video webinar:

Discount Cards, Cost-Plus Pharmacies, and PBMs:
Trends, Controversies, and Outlook

This event will be broadcast live on Friday, March 31, 2023,
from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. ET.

This page describes the event and explains how to purchase a registration. The webinar will be broadcast from the Drug Channels studio in beautiful downtown Philadelphia.

This event is part of The Drug Channels 2023 Video Webinar Series. Anyone who registered for the entire series will receive an email with a link to access the March event.


The rapid expansion of patient-paid prescriptions—via cash-pay pharmacies and discount card vendors—is transforming the prescription market. Join Dr. Fein as he helps you and your team deepen their understanding of this important issue and its crucial implications. He will draw from exclusive information found in DCI's new 2023 Economic Report on U.S. Pharmacies and Pharmacy Benefit Managers.

During the event, Dr. Fein will cover a wide range of topics, including:
  • What’s driving the boom in patient-paid prescriptions
  • The warped economics of the generic prescription channel
  • Cash-pay prescriptions vs. discount cards
  • Why Usual & Customary (U&C) prices matter
  • The latest market data on the discount card market and its key participants
  • The complex economics of discount cards
  • How PBMs profit from—and are challenged by—patient-paid prescriptions
  • Pharmacy strategies and reactions
  • Why and how plans are placing discount cards within pharmacy benefits
  • Commentary on GoodRx, Mark Cuban Cost-Plus Drug Company, and more
  • Outlook for disruption of the pharmacy benefit market
  • Controversies and unresolved questions
  • And more!
PLUS: During the webinar, Dr. Fein will give participants an opportunity to unmute themselves and ask live questions. The webinar will last 90 minutes to accommodate audience questions.

As always, Dr. Fein will clearly distinguish his opinions and interpretations from the objective facts and data.
