Analysis of Board's REVISED Draft Pharmacy Formulary and Regulations

We invite you to read our white paper with our summary and analysis of the Board's revised proposed formulary. In the paper, we provide a number of recommendations for changes to the proposed regulations and formulary.

On 10/17/18, in Subject Number 046-1112, the Workers' Compensation Board released revised draft regulations and a revised proposed pharmacy formulary for public comment. Our readers will recall that the April 2017 workers’ compensation reform legislation required the Board to “establish a comprehensive prescription drug formulary on or before” 12/31/17 (WCL §13-p). Any comments concerning the drug formulary must be submitted on or before 11/16/18 via email
