Re: NAMIC Supports Hawaii’s Proposed Workers’ Compensation, Auto Insurance Medication Pricing Legislation

“NAMIC submitted written testimony supporting HB 1960 because the legislation is a reasonable and balanced pro-insurance consumer and pro-consumer protection legislative proposal.

“HB 1960 will facilitate the creation of thoughtful and appropriate pharmaceutical cost-containment controls necessary to prevent the ever-increasing cost of medications from adversely impacting the affordability of workers’ compensation insurance for small businesses and their employees as well as the cost of state-mandated automobile insurance coverage for consumers.

“Additionally, the proposed legislation will make it less profitable for those who want to ‘game the system’ and reap unconscionable profits by relabeling, repackaging, and/or compounding drugs so that they can circumvent standard medical pricing of medications that are in place to protect consumers from medication pricing fraud.”
