Another Bipartisan Budget

Groundbreaking prescription drug reform

With State Comptroller Kevin Lembo at a January roundtable on drug pricing
  1. Requires drug companies to justify large price increases (20% in one year, 50% over three years)
  2. Makes Connecticut the first state in the nation to require pharmacy benefit managers — the middlemen between drug companies and insurance companies — to disclose how much money they take in from drug company rebates and how much they then retain vs. pass on to consumers
  3. Requires insurance companies to disclose new data about drug spending — the top 25 drugs on their plans, the top 25 drugs with increased prices on their plans, and how much drug prices impacted premiums
