AB 948 – California

Status: Enacted
Year Introduced: 2023

Prescription drugs.
Existing law, until January 1, 2024, prohibits the copayment, coinsurance, or any other form of cost sharing for a covered outpatient prescription drug for an individual prescription from exceeding $250 for a supply of up to 30 days, except as specified. Existing law, until January 1, 2024, requires a nongrandfathered individual or small group plan contract or policy to use specified definitions for each tier of a drug formulary.
This bill would delete the January 1, 2024, repeal date of those provisions, thus making them operative indefinitely. Because extension of the bill’s requirements relative to health care service plans would extend the existence of a crime, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
