Committees and work groups


The Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS) is in the process of considering Pharmacy Benefit Manager related rulemaking which may implement the recommendations made following last year’s Workgroup in accordance with SB 5701 (2016 Budget Note) and this year’s HB 2388 (2017 Legislative Session). As part of that process, we will be convening a public rulemaking advisory committee to provide input regarding substantive provisions and fiscal impact.

Currently, one meeting is scheduled for this group. An additional meeting will be scheduled if necessary.
