Arkansas Ending PhRMA Proceeding Against State 340B Contract Pharmacy Law as Focus Turns to Federal Lawsuit

The Arkansas Insurance Department (AID) is ending the drug industry’s state administrative proceeding to stop the department from implementing and enforcing the state’s novel 340B contract pharmacy law.

In his Oct. 5 order ending the proceeding, Insurance Commissioner Alan McClain cited Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America’s (PhRMA) federal lawsuit to have the law, Act 1103, declared unconstitutional. McClain said a parallel state proceeding “is not legally feasible given that any ruling by the United States district court would ultimately be controlling over any ruling made in the department declaratory proceeding.”
