RELATING TO PHARMACY BENEFIT MANAGERS AND INFORMATION ON PRESCRIPTION DRUGS: Authorizing the Maryland Insurance Commissioner to require any additional information from a pharmacy benefits manager that may be reasonably necessary to verify information in a certain application; requiring a pharmacy benefits manager to establish a certain process by which a certain pharmacy has access to certain maximum allowable cost price lists in an electronic format; applying the Act to all contracts between a pharmacy benefits manager and a pharmacy entered into or in effect on or after January 1, 2019.

Note:  The Maryland Senate passed this bill, but the Governor vetoed the bill because it was duplicative with HB 1349, which was enacted as Md. Code Ann., Ins. §§ 15-1628.1 and Md. Code Ann., Ins. §§ 15-1642.
