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."
