Review Pharmacy Benefits Management Legislation
In February, the Senate Committee on Financial Institutions and Insurance
reviewed 2015 SB 103, a bill that would enact new law establishing requirements
for Pharmacy Benefits Managers (PBMs), including publication of price lists and
the drugs included on the lists, an appeals process for network pharmacies
requesting reimbursement for drugs subject to MAC, and penalties for PBMs
found to be in violation of the act, and would amend the Pharmacy Benefits
Manager Registration Act to update the definition of “pharmacy benefits
The Committee is to review 2015 SB 103 and relevant issues associated with
pharmacy benefits management, including maximum allowable cost (MAC)
pricing of generic drugs, and the implications for Kansas pharmacies and health
Study the Need to Increase the Minimum Motor Vehicle Liability Insurance Policy Limits
and, If Needed, What Limits Would be Indicated
In February, the House Committee on Insurance held a hearing on HB 2067. The
bill would have increased the mandatory minimum motor vehicle liability policy
limits. After hearing proponent and opponent testimony, no action was taken. The
Committee indicated the need to study the matter before action, if any, was
taken. Under existing law, KSA 40-3107, the minimum policy coverage limits in
any one accident is $25,000 for bodily injury or death of one person and $50,000
for two or more persons, and $10,000 for harm to or destruction of the property of
others. The last changes to these limits were made in 1984.
