AN ACT TO PROHIBIT INSURANCE CARRIERS FROM CHARGING ENROLLES FOR PRESCRIPTION DRUGS IN AMOUNTS THAT EXCEED THE DRUGS’ COSTS: prohibits a carrier or pharmacy benefits manager to impose on an enrollee a copayment or other charge that exceeds the claim cost of a prescription drug. If information related to an enrollee’s out-of-pocket cost of the clinical efficacy of a prescription drug or alternative medication is available to a pharmacy provider, a carrier or pharmacy benefits manager may not penalize provider for providing that information to enrollee.
