Measure Title: RELATING TO PHARMACY BENEFIT MANAGERS.
Report Title: Pharmacy Benefit Managers; Maximum Allowable Cost; Requirements; Contracting Pharmacies
Description: Establishes requirements for pharmacy benefit managers and maximum allowable cost, including the ability of pharmacies to receive comprehensive maximum allowable cost lists and bring complaints within the purview of the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, rather than the Department of Health. Requires pharmacy benefit managers to disclose where an equivalent drug can be obtained at or below the maximum allowable cost when a maximum allowable cost is upheld on appeal. Allows contracting pharmacies to reverse and rebill claims if the pharmacy benefit manager establishes a maximum allowable cost that is denied on appeal and is required to pay the difference to the contracting pharmacies. Preserves the prohibition of a contracting pharmacy from disclosing the maximum allowable cost list and related information to any third party. (SB3104 HD1)
