Legislature advances proposals for tougher regulation of PBMsPosted On: Apr. 24, 2023 9:51 AM CST
After the Florida Senate passed its version of the plan last week, the House on April 21 moved forward with a proposal that would bolster regulation of pharmacy benefit managers, reports WUSF. House bill 1509 would significantly expand regulation of the industry. Examples of proposed changes in the bill include: increased oversight by the OIR, restrictions on spread pricing, requiring PBMs to include non-owned pharmacies in their networks, and barring PBMs from requiring patients to use mail-order pharmacies, the report says.
