 Comments Submitted by AMAC Action 

AMAC Action submitted comments to the House E&C Committee for a hearing it was holding entitled “Legislative Proposals to Support Patients and Caregivers.” We highlighted our HEALTH Act to increase access to quality healthcare for vulnerable populations. We also submitted comments to the New York state Department of Financial Services regarding new rules for pharmacy benefit managers. We acknowledged that the reforms were good and noted that more reform is necessary. We included our PBM white paper detailing the issues that were not addressed with the new regs in NY.
