many people could be paying more for medicine, because the cash price may be lower than the co-pay. something called a clawback. a study showed consumers pay $8 more per prescription when the cash price is lower. >> the member paid more, and then some, and that was just additional profit. >> reporter: so, who is getting the profit? researchers say pbms, pharmacy benefit management companies. the middle man between insurance and pharmacies. and some pharmacists are not able to tell customers due to gag clauses. >> do the right thing and lay your head down and sleep better that you shared with somebody, hey, you can get this cheaper this way. >> reporter: gag clauses, already illegal in 11 states. 9 already outlaw clawbacks. cvs and walgreens say they don't engage in clawbacks.
