Regulating Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) Licensing and Transparency

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.
