SB 910 - This act requires a health carrier or managed care plan that provides prescription drug coverage in the state to offer medication synchronization services. A health carrier or managed care plan that provides prescription drug coverage shall not charge any amount in excess of the otherwise applicable co-payment for dispensing a prescription drug in a quantity that is less than the prescribed amount and shall provide a full dispensing fee to the pharmacy that dispenses the prescription drug so long as the terms of the medication synchronization services are met.
