6 Acknowledgments This study benefited greatly from the contributions of many individuals. We developed our survey of pharmaceutical cost containment strategies with the help of our colleagues Linda Carrubba and Stacey Eccleston. Many state officials contributed substantial time and expertise to completing the survey and responded to our many queries asking for clarification and validation. Our colleague Linda Carrubba provided expert administrative assistance as well as many organizational and substantive insights. We especially appreciate the thoughtful comments of our technical reviewers, Professor Peter Barth of the University of Connecticut and Dr. Leslie Wilson of the School of Pharmacy at the University of California, San Francisco. Their critiques of an earlier draft of the study raised issues that helped us improve the analysis presented in this report. We also wish to thank Jill McNamee, who managed the review and publication process. We are indebted to Barbara McGowran for editing our prose to improve its readability and precision, and for her thorough review of the manuscript to save us from ourselves on many occasions. We also thank Jan Cocker for carefully proofreading the final report. Of course, any errors in the study remain our responsibility. Richard A. Victor Petia Petrova Cambridge, MA June 2006 v

14 Introduction This study focuses on the state laws and regulations that affect the costs and use of pharmaceuticals in workers compensation. It is the companion volume to the broader analysis of these issues titled The Cost and Use of Pharmaceuticals in Workers Compensation: A Guide for Policymakers. Chapter 3 of that study summarizes the state policies in effect as of November 15, This volume provides the detailed information state by state that underlies the analysis in that chapter. Scope of This Study This study examines the laws and regulations that are unique to workers compensation, focusing on those involving Pharmaceuticals are also regulated by federal and state governments in a variety of contexts, ranging from premarket approval of new drugs by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to postmarket surveillance by the FDA and the liability system, to regulations about directto-consumer advertising, to rules that regulate the prescribing and dispensing of controlled substances (e.g., narcotics), to reimbursement rules for insurance programs where federal or state governments are payors (e.g., Medicaid or the Veterans Health Administration). Analysis of these public policy interventions is outside the scope of this study, as are policies related to over-thecounter drugs and injectables. data and methods reimbursement rules (e.g., fee schedules); stimulating price competition (e.g., rules about pharmacy networks); generic substitution; control of the choice of pharmacy; and utilization management (e.g., authorization for payors to conduct various forms of drug utilization review and specific limitations on the types and amounts of drugs that may be dispensed). The information presented here comes from surveys of workers compensation agency experts in U.S. jurisdictions. Based on the information received, we created state profiles and returned them to the appropriate state experts for review. After receiving additional comments, we revised the state profiles to include in this report. We received completed surveys and review comments from 46 states. The information is current as of November 15,

16 Alabama Regulation of Pharmaceutical Prices in general Maximum reimbursement rates for pharmaceuticals dispensed at retail pharmacies and at doctors offices are established by the pharmacy fee schedule. For drugs dispensed for hospital outpatients and inpatients, maximum reimbursement rates are established by hospital fee guidelines. Any payor can contract with health care providers for the provision of medical services to injured workers in accordance with the requirements of the Alabama Code, 1975, Section Contracts for medical services at mutually agreed rates. pharmaceuticals dispensed at retail pharmacies Ala. Code The current fee schedule applicable for retail pharmacies became effective on February 15, The maximum fee schedule is expressed by two formulas, based on the Average Wholesale Price (AWP). For brand-name drugs: AWP + (5% of AWP) + $7.01 dispensing fee For generic drugs: AWP + (5% of AWP) + $9.11 dispensing fee pharmaceuticals dispensed at doctors offices The current fee schedule applicable for doctor-dispensed drugs is given by this formula: AWP + (5% of AWP) The doctor must be authorized by the employer as a treating physician, and the treating physician may dispense drugs from his or her own pharmacy at the discretion of the payor. There is no dispensing fee, and the formula is the same for brand-name and generic drugs. pharmaceuticals dispensed for hospital outpatients The hospital fee schedule applies. Pharmaceuticals are part of the per diem inpatient rate. The Alabama Department of Industrial Relations negotiates rates with each hospital, ambulatory surgical center, or licensed outpatient rehabilitation 5

Regulation of Drug Utilization Review generic substitution Ala. Code Generics are permitted explicitly in Alabama. The doctor may prescribe and the pharmacist may dispense generics. Whenever medically appropriate, a pharmaceutically and therapeutically equivalent drug product may be selected by a physician or other authorized practitioner (bioequivalency rating must be A or B). A licensed pharmacist in Alabama is permitted to select a generic if the physician does not expressly prohibit such a substitution. The same rules apply when the doctor prescribes over the phone. use of drug formularies State statutes are silent. According to regulators, use of formularies by payors or pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) in Alabama is implicitly permitted. use of step therapy State statutes are silent.

As of January 6, 2006, Alaska had not implemented this provision.
