A pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) is a third party administrator of a prescription drug program that is primarily responsible for processing and paying prescription drug claims. In addition, a PBM typically negotiates discounts and rebates with drug manufacturers, contracts with pharmacies, and develops and maintains the formulary. Navitus negotiates rebates and discounts on behalf of the State of Minnesota and passes the savings back to the State.
