SENATE LABOR CMTE. HEALTH REFORM BILL WOULD REQUIRE HIGHER Rx DRUG COPAY
SENATE LABOR CMTE. HEALTH REFORM BILL WOULD REQUIRE HIGHER Rx DRUG COPAY than is proposed under President Clinton's Health Security Act for those who select the lower-cost, HMO-type coverage option. The chairman's mark released by Labor Committee Chairman Kennedy (D-Mass.) May 11 would require a $10 copay per prescription, rather than the $5 copay proposed in the Clinton plan. The Kennedy mark does not amend the 20% prescription copay requirement that would apply to those enrolled in higher cost- sharing plans under the Health Security Act.
