The bill, A-3331 requires insurance companies to cover prescriptions dispensed in less than a one-month’s supply, allowing all the prescriptions to a patient to be renewed at the same time.

“Doctors and pharmacist should really be the ones deciding when prescriptions are refilled and not insurance companies,” said Rodriquez-Gregg, R – Burlington and Atlantic. “Managing medications is an important part of treatment.”

Synchronization of medication also helps improve communication between pharmacists and patients, Rodriguez-Gregg noted.

“It is very common for seniors to juggle 12 or more different medications at once,” said Rodriguez-Gregg. “This is a better way to refill medications for everyone. Confusion resulting from the long prescription schedules too often leads to people failing to refill their medication and not taking all their prescribed dosages.”
