Julie discusses the role of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) and the incentives that keep them from listing most biosimilars on their formularies. She applauds the recent launch of multiple new biosimilars for the blockbuster biologic Humira and explains why this moment is pivotal for the biosimilars industry and the US healthcare system as a whole.
