Prescription Eye Drop Refills


On April 28, 2017, Gov. Haslam signed HB 18 into law, creating Public Chapter No. 232. This law requires plans providing coverage for prescription eye drops to provide coverage for refills if the participant requests such:

  • For a 30-day supply, at least 23 days after the date the participant received the original prescription or the date the participant received the last prescription refill;
  • For a 60-day supply, at least 45 days after the date the participant received the original prescription or the date the participant received the last prescription refill; or
  • For a 90-day supply, at least 68 days after the date the participant received an original prescription or the date the participant received the last prescription refill.

This law is effective for health benefit plans or policies entered into, issued, or renewed on or after Jan. 1, 2018.
