HB0035 Signed into Law

On March 4, 2016 HB0035 Pharmacy Benefit Managers was signed by Governor Mead.  This has been a year long process by many individuals to collaborate and compromise on legislation that would ensure timely updates of MAC pricing at least once every seven business days and standardize procedures for audits.  To read the complete act HERE.  The Association would like to thank independent pharmacy owner and Past WPhA President Craig Frederick for his persistence in ensuring this legislation would become law.  We would also like to thank Brad Young from RxPlus who was instrumental in supporting the Association and the legislation.
