Current Bill Summary

SB 312 - Current law provides that dispensing of maintenance medication based on refills authorized by the physician or prescriber on the prescription be limited to no more than a ninety day supply of the medication. This act changes the supply amount to no more than one hundred and eighty days. This act also repeals a provision that required the medication to have been prescribed for at least a three month period.

This act is similar to HCS/HB 657 (2017) and to a provision contained in CCS/HCS/SB 501 (2017).
