PBM Reform Makes Its Way to Vermont

In the past several months, many states have passed laws supporting PBM reform. Vermont may be the next. On March 25, 2022, the Vermont House of Representatives passed a new bill, H 353, that would limit pharmacy benefit managers and increase transparency across the state. The bill comes after a record number of Vermont pharmacies have closed in recent months. H 353 aims to close that gap. The bill now awaits consideration in the Senate.
