Summary

Due to the delay in the prior authorization process by pharmacy benefit managers, many patients end up waiting days to weeks for medications to be filled that are prescribed on an emergency basis or for medications that have been previously prescribed for chronic and long-term conditions that must go through the prior authorization process again. To reduce the delay and hardship of this waiting process, this bill will put into place specified time tables to fill emergency prescriptions and to make subsequent prior authorizations for chronic and long-term conditions to be filled more readily.
