Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Managed Care Reform and Patient Rights Act. Provides that every health insurance carrier that provides coverage for prescription drugs shall ensure that no fewer than 25% of certain individual and group plans offered shall apply a pre-deductible, flat-dollar copayment structure to the entire drug benefit. Provides that the flat-dollar copayment structure for prescription drugs must be reasonably graduated and proportionately related in all tier levels such that the copayment structure as a whole does not discriminate against or discourage the enrollment of individuals with significant health care needs. Requires the health insurance carriers to clearly and appropriately name the plans to aid in consumer or plan-sponsor plan selection. Requires the health insurance carriers to market the plans in the same manner as their other plans. Provides that if a health insurance carrier offers fewer than 4 plans, the health insurance carrier shall ensure that one plan shall use the drug benefit structure, including cost-sharing requirements. Requires the Department of Insurance to adopt rules necessary to implement and enforce the provisions. Effective January 1, 2020.
