HB 2219 prohibits any insurance carrier, corporation, or pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) from limiting a patient's ability to select the pharmacy of their choice. Along with this, any pharmacy that meets the terms and conditions of participation in a direct service / provider agreement must be have their request acted upon within 60 days of receipt.
HB 2333 and SB 1445 were both enacted into law by Governor Northam to help slow the pandemic by facilitating COVID-19 vaccination in the state. These laws better enable pharmacies to efficiently immunize their communities by allowing pharmacies to volunteer their facilities as COVID-19 vaccination sites.
