Achilles Brown depends on his independent pharmacy as a support system for his weekly medication deliveries. Health equity and access is the most important and we cannot see PBMs continue to shut down pharmacies needed by vulnerable patients. Read now: spectrumlocalnews.com/nys/capital-re…

NYS law makers have put regulations on PBMs but they are still not enough. Our local pharmacies and patients are suffering and calls for help are being left unanswered. We must keep fighting and Governor Kathy Hochul must act now.

NewYork’s independent pharmacies are in jeopardy of going out of business due to extremely low reimbursement rates by PBMs. Governor Kathy Hochul has signed into law key elements of the Pharmacy Rescue Package, but we must continue to fight for our patients, pharmacies, and families.

FixRx Governor Kathy Hochul - missed the mark that MCO Rx cost based, pass through payment mandate will cost $$. 3 NYS studies - including 2 done by the state DOCUMENT NYS MCO overcharges for Rx claims. Oh - and CA just sued its largest MMC MCO over Medicaid Rx overcharge fraud.

The year’s biggest slap in the face was the one dealt to PSSNY by Governor Kathy Hochul when she went back on her word and failed to include Fee-For-Service parity in the 2023 budget.

5,300 pharmacists and 7 million Medicaid patients will remember in November.

Governor Kathy Hochul is taking care of the Bills but not those who dispense the pills (and give vaccines) in the state budget. I guess she can tell patients to watch some football when they lose access to essential health services in their communities?

Two years into a pandemic that's proven how essential pharmacists are to the health of our communities, it appears Governor Kathy Hochul can't find a dime to keep pharmacies open but will give a billionaire $600 million of New Yorkers' money for a stadium?

Again, THIS ⬇️⬇️⬇️ is how New York legislators can combat the growing threat of pharmacy deserts for patients. This is the type of leadership & ally that small business owners need in their legislators. Thank you Senator James Skoufis !
