PSSNY Applauds NYS Legislature for Passing the Nation's Toughest Bill to Regulating PBM Middlemen
“We thank the members of the New York State Legislature for passing these bills, the leadership of Speaker Heastie and Senate Leader Stewart-Cousins, as well as Health and Insurance Committee Chairs Senators Breslin and Rivera and Assembly Members Gottfried and Cahill, who took the time to understand the issues and act in the best interest of New York’s patients, consumers, tax payers and healthcare providers,” said Debbi Barber, PSSNY President. “Today’s victory is a testament to the power of communities coming together to work for the greater good, and an acknowledgement of years of effort that will ultimately result in a better, healthier New York. We look forward to working with Governor Cuomo so New York can lead the way in regulating PBMs and protecting patients.” Read PSSNY Press Release
