Louisiana Bans Insurers From Controversial 'White Bagging' Practice

A new law developed by Louisiana lawmakers will prohibit health insurers from implementing a pharmacy policy known as "white bagging." White bagging refers to when health insurers don't allow providers to supply a drug for their patients, but instead requires them to use a third-party specialty pharmacy to dispense the drug to the provider first. Under this new law, health insurers in Louisiana cannot deny payment to providers if they receive physician-administered drugs from a pharmacy that is not in the health insurer's network.
