Information about HB1194 / SB1023 Health Drug Cost Review Commission:

This bill will establish a Commission to review the cost of Prescription Drugs and evaluate:

• what a reasonable charge should be for each drug

• what the reimbursement rate should be for the manufacturer or re-seller.

If a manufacturer or re-seller charges more than the established reimbursement rate, they will be referred to the Attorney General’s Office to pursue a remedy consistent with state or Federal law.

WISE would love to hear from you.....
