WVC 5 - 16 C- 1

§5-16C-1. Legislative findings; purpose; short title.

The Legislature finds that the rapidly rising cost of

prescription drugs places an undue financial burden on the state of

West Virginia, the payors and the consumers of prescription drugs.

The purpose of this legislation is to authorize the director of the

public employees insurance agency to act on behalf of specified

agencies, programs and political subdivisions to manage the steady

increase in prescription drug costs, thus benefitting the citizens

and fiscal strength of this state. This article shall be known and

may be cited as the "Prescription Drug Cost Management Act."
