Primary Sponsors: Sen. Ralph Hise (R – Madison), Sen. Jerry Tillman (R – Moore), Sen. Andrew Brock (R – Davie)

If passed, this bill would require health benefit plans to provide coverage for prescribed, orally administered anticancer drugs. The bill states coverage for orally administered anticancer drugs would not be subject to prior authorization dollar limits, co-payments, coinsurance or deductible provisions or out of pocket costs. The bill also states  insurers cannot reclassify anticancer drugs in order to comply with this bill.
