States Target PBMs

The Patients Rising Podcast has moved to Monday mornings! 

In this episode, hear how Florida is poised to take on PBMs, the pharmaceutical middlemen, and how potential reforms would help patients access affordable medications. Jared Willis gives his updates from the Sunshine State. 

And a shortage of kidneys available for transplants has patient advocates sounding the alarm. Co-hosts Terry Wilcox and Bob Goldberg talk about the crisis facing patients with end-stage renal disease. Plus, a story of rare disease advocacy in the MLB.
