Legislation filed in Florida this year will help our most vulnerable population keep their pharmacy of choice.
Managed Care Plan Provider Networks legislation will allow all willing pharmacies, including community pharmacies, to participate in Medicaid Managed Care health plans that enable patients to go to their pharmacy of choice and have their prescriptions covered by their health plan.
Currently, some Medicaid Managed Care health plans are restricting patients’ coverage to specific pharmacies and not allowing others to participate in their plans. This legislation will fix this problem and is good for patient access and care. Florida lawmakers should vote YES.
