(2) results in consumers for whom the drug has been prescribed, the commissioner of human services, and health plan companies having no meaningful choice about whether to purchase the drug at an excessive price because of:

(ii) insufficient competition in the market for the drug.

 

(f) "Wholesale acquisition cost" has the meaning given in United States Code, title 42, section 1395w-3a.

 

Subd. 2.  Prohibition.  A manufacturer or wholesale drug distributor may not engage in price gouging in the sale of an essential off-patent or generic drug.  It is not a violation of this subdivision for a wholesale drug distributor to increase the price of an essential off-patent or generic drug if the price increase is directly attributable to additional costs for the drug imposed on the wholesale drug distributor by the manufacturer of the drug.

 

Subd. 3.  Notification of attorney general.  (a) The board, the commissioner of human services, or a health plan company may notify the attorney general of any increase in the price of an essential off-patent or generic drug when:

 

(1) the price increase, by itself or in combination with other price increases:

 

(i) would result in an increase of 50 percent or more, compared to the preceding one-year period, in the wholesale acquisition cost of the drug or other relevant measure of drug cost; or

 

(ii) would result in an increase of 50 percent or more in the price paid by the medical assistance or MinnesotaCare programs, or the health plan company, for the drug compared to the preceding one-year period; and

 

(2)(i) a 30-day supply of the maximum recommended dosage of the drug for any indication, according to the label for the drug approved under the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, would cost more than $80 at the drug's wholesale acquisition cost;

 

(ii) a full course of treatment with the drug, according to the label for the drug approved under the federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, would cost more than $80 at the drug's wholesale acquisition cost; or

 

(iii) if the drug is made available to consumers only in quantities that do not correspond to a 30-day supply, a full course of treatment, or a single dose, it would cost more than $80 at the drug's wholesale acquisition cost to obtain a 30-day supply or a full course of treatment.

 

The commissioner of human services and the health plan company shall notify the board of any notification to the attorney general provided under this paragraph.


Journal of the House - 89th Day - Tuesday, May 1, 2018 - Top of Page 9925

(3) identifying the circumstances and timing of any expenditures made by the manufacturer to expand access to the drug and explaining any improvement in public health associated with those expenditures; and

 

(4) providing any other information that the manufacturer believes to be relevant to a determination of whether a violation of this section has occurred.

 

(c) The attorney general may require a manufacturer or a wholesale drug distributor to produce any records or other documents that may be relevant to a determination of whether a violation of this section has occurred.  The attorney general or a person may use the powers and procedures provided in this section or section 8.31.

 

(d) The attorney general may not bring an action for a remedy under paragraph (c) unless the attorney general has provided the manufacturer or wholesale drug distributor an opportunity to meet with the attorney general to offer a justification for the increase in the price of the essential off-patent or generic drug.

 

(e) The attorney general shall make any information provided by a health plan company, manufacturer, or wholesale drug distributor under paragraphs (a), (b), and (c) available to the board upon request.  Any information provided by a health plan company, manufacturer, or wholesale drug distributor to the attorney general under paragraphs (a), (b), and (c) shall be treated as nonpublic data under section 13.02, subdivision 9, unless the nonpublic classification of the information is waived by the health plan company, manufacturer, or wholesale drug distributor.

 

(f) In any action brought by the attorney general under paragraph (c), a person who is alleged to have violated a requirement of this section may not assert as a defense that the person did not deal directly with a consumer residing in the state.

 

Subd. 4.  Private right of action.  In addition to remedies otherwise provided by law, any person injured by a violation of this section may bring a civil action and recover damages, together with costs and disbursements, including costs of investigation and reasonable attorney fees, and receive other equitable relief as determined by the court.  The court may, as appropriate, enter a consent judgment or decree without the finding of illegality.  Any civil action brought under this subdivision is for the benefit of the public.

      So it was the judgment of the House that the decision of Speaker pro tempore Garofalo should stand.

 

 

Murphy, E., moved to amend H. F. No. 3138, the second engrossment, as amended, as follows:

 

Page 76, after line 10, insert:

 

"Sec. 4.  [62Q.521] COVERAGE OF CONTRACEPTIVE METHODS AND SERVICES.

 

Subdivision 1.  Definitions.  (a) The definitions in this subdivision apply to this section.

 

(b) "Contraceptive method" means a drug, device, or other product approved by the Food and Drug Administration to prevent unintended pregnancy.

 

(c) "Contraceptive service" means consultation, examination, procedures, and medical services related to the use of a contraceptive method, including natural family planning, to prevent an unintended pregnancy.

 

(d) "Therapeutic equivalent version" means a drug, device, or product that can be expected to have the same clinical effect and safety profile when administered to a patient under the condition specified in the labeling and that:

 

(1) is approved as safe and effective;

 

(2) is a pharmaceutical equivalent in that the drug, device, or product contains identical amounts of the same active drug ingredient in the same dosage form and route of administration, and the drug, device, or product meets compendial or other applicable standards of strength, quality, purity, and identity;

 

(3) is bioequivalent in that:

 

(i) the drug, device, or product does not present a known or potential bioequivalence problem and meets an acceptable in vitro standard; or

 

(ii) if the drug, device, or product does present a known or potential bioequivalence problem, it is shown to meet an appropriate bioequivalence standard;

 

(4) is adequately labeled; and

 

(5) is manufactured in compliance with current manufacturing practice regulations.

 

Subd. 2.  Required coverage; cost sharing prohibited.  (a) A health plan must provide coverage for:

 

(1) all contraceptive methods, including over-the-counter contraceptives, but excluding male condoms;

 

(2) voluntary sterilization procedures;


Journal of the House - 89th Day - Tuesday, May 1, 2018 - Top of Page 9933

(3) contraceptive services, patient education, and counseling on contraception; and

 

(4) follow-up services related to contraceptive methods, voluntary sterilization procedures, and contraceptive services, including but not limited to management of side effects, counseling for continued adherence, and device insertion and removal.

 

(b) A health plan company shall not require any cost-sharing requirements, including co-pays, deductibles, and coinsurance, for the coverage required by this section.

 

(c) A health plan company shall not include any referral requirements or restrictions, or require a delay for the coverage required by this section.

 

(d) If the Food and Drug Administration has approved more than one therapeutic equivalent version of a contraceptive method, a health plan is not required to include more than one therapeutic equivalent version in its formulary.

 

(e) If a provider recommends a specific contraceptive method to an enrollee, the health plan company must provide coverage for the contraceptive method.

 

(f) If a contraceptive method is not covered by a health plan, the health plan company must provide enrollees with an easily accessible, transparent, and expedient process, that is not unduly burdensome to the enrollee, to request coverage of the contraceptive method by the health plan.

 

(g) Nothing in this section allows for the exclusion of coverage for a contraceptive method prescribed by a provider, acting within the provider's scope of practice, for reasons other than contraceptive purposes, such as decreasing the risk of ovarian cancer or eliminating symptoms of menopause, or for contraception that is necessary to preserve the life or health of an enrollee.

 

Subd. 3.  Religious employers; exempt.  For purposes of this subdivision, a "religious employer" means an employer that is a nonprofit entity and meets the requirements of section 6033(a)(3)(A)(i) or (iii) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (2018).  A religious employer is exempt from this section if the religious employer provides all employees and prospective employees with reasonable and timely notice of the exemption prior to their enrollment in the health plan.  The notice must provide a list of the contraceptive methods the employer refuses to cover for religious reasons.

 

Subd. 4.  Accommodation for eligible organizations.  (a) An organization is an "eligible organization" if it:

 

(1) is a nonprofit entity that holds itself as a religious organization and opposes providing coverage for some or all contraceptive methods or services required to be covered by this section on account of religious objections; or

 

(2) is a closely held for-profit entity and the organization's highest governing body has adopted a resolution or similar action, under the organization's applicable rules of governance and consistent with state law, establishing that it objects to covering some or all of the contraceptive methods or services on account of the owners' sincerely held religious beliefs; and

 

(3) submits a notice to its health plan company stating that it qualifies as an eligible organization under this subdivision and that it has a religious objection to coverage for all, or a subset of, contraceptive methods or services.

 

(b) For purposes of paragraph (a), clause (2), a closely held for-profit entity is an entity that has:


Journal of the House - 89th Day - Tuesday, May 1, 2018 - Top of Page 9934

(1) more than 50 percent of the value of its ownership interest owned directly or indirectly by five or fewer individuals, or has an ownership structure that is substantially similar; and

 

(2) no publicly traded ownership interest, meaning any class of common equity securities required to be registered under United States Code, chapter 15, section 78l.

 

(c) For purposes of paragraph (b), ownership interests owned by:

 

(1) a corporation, partnership, estate, or trust are considered owned proportionately by the entity's respective shareholders, partners, or beneficiaries;

 

(2) an individual are considered owned, directly or indirectly, by or for the individual's family.  For purposes of this clause, "family" includes brothers and sisters, including half-brothers and half-sisters, a spouse, ancestors, and lineal descendants; and

 

(3) the person that holds the option to purchase an ownership interest are considered to be the owner of those ownership interests.

 

(d) A health plan company that receives the notice described in paragraph (a) must:

 

(1) exclude coverage of contraceptive methods and services, as requested by the eligible organization, from the health plan; and

 

(2) provide enrollees with a separate payment for any contraceptive methods and services that would be covered if the organization was not an eligible organization.

 

(e) The requirements of subdivision 2 apply to payments made by a health plan company under this subdivision.

 

EFFECTIVE DATE.  This section is effective January 1, 2020, and applies to coverage offered, sold, issued, or renewed on or after that date."

Page 3 line 15, delete "(3)" and insert "(4)"

 

Page 4, after line 6, insert:

 

"Subd. 5.  Persons with sincerely held religious beliefs.  A person who objects to health plan coverage for all or a subset of contraceptive methods or services based on sincerely held religious beliefs must submit a notice to the person's health plan company specifying the contraceptive methods or services to which the person objects based on the person's sincerely held religious beliefs.  A health plan company that receives this notice must exclude from coverage in the person's health plan, the contraceptive methods and services to which the person objects.  A health plan company is prohibited from charging a person who objects to health plan coverage for all or a subset of contraceptive methods or services based on sincerely held religious beliefs, for costs attributable to coverage of the contraceptive method or service to which the person objects."
