Up to half of patients do not take their prescriptions correctly, which has been estimated to cost nearly $300 billion a year for emergency room visits, hospital admissions, lab testing, and other medical expenditures. Medication Therapy Management (MTM) optimizes therapeutic outcomes for individual patients, with MTM returns on investment ranging from $3.50 saved for every $1 spent to $12 saved for every $1.
AB 2418 will improve the process for medical patients to obtain their prescription drugs and follow their doctor’s instructions on taking their medications. It will provide patients with a choice between picking up their medications at a local pharmacy or by having their medications delivered through mail order programs. In addition, this bill streamlines the medication refill process by making it more convenient for patients to pick up all their medications on one trip to the pharmacy and allows patients who run out of eye drops to obtain an early refill.
