A group of six proponents of HB 2598 provided testimony in front of the House Insurance Committee on Monday, Feb. 17. The six conferees focused heavily on the financial and clinical burden that predatory PBM practices have on patients, physicians and pharmacists.
"We're excited about the response from the committee and grateful for their attention and thoughtful questions," said Matt Morrison, KPhA President.
On Wednesday, Feb. 19, opponents of HB 2598 will get an opportunity to speak regarding the bill. After their testimony, KPhA will be provided an opportunity to rebut their statements. "We are cautiously optimistic about the chances that this bill clears the committee but the fight is definitely not over," Morrison added.
