SB 3 further details licensing requirements for pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), and states that these licenses may be limited, suspended, or revoked if a PBM repeatedly or knowingly violates any outlined rules or endangers the general public. PBMs will also be required to submit annual transparency reports. They will also be prohibited from making a patient pay more for a covered drug than either the cost-sharing amount or the out-of-pocket cost without using insurance, whichever amount is lower. In addition, the new law requires pharmacies to have readily available information about drug costs and inform patients of other interchangeable drug options that may be more affordable.

AB 4 was enacted into law by Wisconsin legislature in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This law allows certified pharmacy technicians to administer vaccines, and also allows pharmacy students to do the same under the supervision of a licensed pharmacists or other authorized provider. This helps facilitate faster and more efficient immunization progress across the state.
