Legislature finishes action on bill responding to pharmacists' complaints

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2018 at 4:38 PM

Benji Hardy reports for the Arkansas Nonprofit News Network on the legislature's completion of action on bills to address pharmacists' complaints about how pharmacy benefits managers have held down reimbursements for drugs covered by Medicaid.

In the end, passage came with little debate, other than some objections from benefit managers.

The small government, heavily Republican Arkansas legislature decided it was time to regulate the drug prescription business. Ironic, yes?
