The final budget for 2016-17 rejected the executive budget proposal to repeal Prescriber Prevails for all drug classes in Fee for Service and Managed Care, except for atypical-antipsychotics and antidepressants! This proposal would have had negative impacts on patient access to medications, and would have restricted the rights of health care providers to provide the best prescription treatments for their patients’ specific health conditions through Prescriber Prevails.
