The Alliance for Transparent and Affordable Prescriptions (ATAP) is a coalition of provider and patient groups who have joined together over the shared concern with the practices of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs). As patient and healthcare provider advocates, they strongly favor, like FSR, increased transparency in PBM contracting.
