On July 6, 2015, Gov. Brown signed SB 93 into law, requiring fully insured plans to provide reimbursement for up to a 90-day supply of previously dispensed eligible prescription drugs if certain conditions are met. Two such conditions are that the prescription drug is covered by the plan and the quantity of the prescription drug dispensed does not exceed the total remaining quantity of the prescription drug the prescribing practitioner authorized to be dispensed through refills. The law also clarifies that a prescription benefit plan or a prescription drug benefit offered under a health benefit plan determines the reimbursement rates. The provisions of this law apply to contracts entered into or renewed on or after Jan. 1, 2016.
