PBM Bill Stalls as General Assembly Heads into Veto Recess
Thank you to our members and colleagues across Kentucky who reached out to your legislators to educate and ask for their support. The profession held strong and created a concise message to the legislature: Put patients first! Unfortunately, the Kentucky Senate chose to look the other way while pharmacies and patients remain at risk.
KPhA's advocacy to put patients over PBM profits does not stop here. We will continue to fight back against PBMs' unfair, profit-driven practices and work closely with our legislators on the state and federal levels to create policy solutions that benefit Kentucky patients and pharmacists alike. Until PBMs are forced to play fairly, we will continue to sound the alarm on PBMs' questionable actions.
Regarding PBM's actions, check out this article from Kentucky Health News exploring the exorbitant lobbying expenditure this session from those opposing HB 457.
