WCA COMMENTS ON PROPOSED PBM REGULATIONS

On November 14, 2016, the WCA wrote to the Workers’ Compensation Board commenting on the Board’s recent proposals to create a formulary for prescription medications and to require insurers to contract with pharmacy benefit management companies.  The WCA expressed concerns about the impact the proposal would have on the availability of appropriate treatment for injured workers in a timely manner, as well as with the potential for increased system costs as yet another insurer-side “cottage industry” is developed to divert employer premium dollars from injured workers.
