Allows a pharmacist, upon request of the patient, to dispense a 90 day supply of a prescription under specified circumstances.

Requires a period of at least 30 days during which a pharmacy may appeal preliminary audit report findings. Provides for the correction of clerical errors. Requires the health finance commission to study during the 2012 legislative interim: (1) the issue of certain pharmacies and whether any limitation should be placed on the dispensing of a prescription drug by the pharmacies; and (2) specified health insurance plans and the number of covered people with copayments, coinsurance amounts, and out-of-pocket costs incurred for prescription drugs that exceed specified amounts for the coverage.
