North Carolina Enacts PBM Oversight Law Protecting Most 340B Covered Entities

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper (D) signed into law yesterday a bill that imposes greater oversight of pharmacy benefit managers and protects most categories of 340B entities from so called discriminatory reimbursement and contracting practices.  Disproportionate share hospitals (DSH), children’s hospitals and hemophilia treatment centers were not successful in getting added to the law.

Known as SB 257, the Medication Cost Transparency Act, the bill creates new protections from PBM actions for sole community hospitals, federal qualified health centers, family planning clinics, Ryan White clinics, the state’s HIV medication assistance program, urban Indian organizations, STD clinics, critical access hospitals and rural referral centers. The bill also provides protections to the contract pharmacies serving those entities.
