In this issue, we are fortunate to bring readers a Guest Editorial from Michael C. Schweitz, MD, a member of the board of directors for the Coalition for State Rheumatology Organizations and a member of the Healio Rheumatology Peer Perspective Board, and Ally Lopshire, JD, a government affairs specialist at WJ Weiser & Associates. They share their opinions on the role of pharmacy benefit managers acting as the intermediaries between insurers, manufacturers and pharmacies. This is an important and timely topic, and I encourage readers to get involved in the mission of the Alliance for Transparent and Affordable Prescriptions.— Leonard H. Calabrese, DO
