  • § 4634. Prescription drug price disclosure

    (a) Upon request, a pharmacy shall disclose to any consumer or health care provider the usual and customary retail price of a prescription drug.

    (b) With each prescription dispensed, a pharmacy shall disclose to the consumer, in writing, the price of the prescription and any payment toward the price required of the consumer.

    (c) For purposes of this section:

    (1) “Price of the prescription” means the amount charged by the pharmacy to the consumer or, if applicable, to the consumer’s health benefit plan.

    (2) “Usual and customary retail price” means the total price charged to a consumer who does not have prescription drug coverage under a health benefit plan.

    (d) In addition to any other remedy provided by law, the Attorney General may file an action in Superior Court for a violation of this section. In any such action, the Attorney General shall have the same authority to investigate and to obtain remedies as if the action were brought under the Consumer Protection Act, 9 V.S.A. chapter 63. Each violation of this section constitutes a separate civil violation for which the Attorney General may obtain relief. (Added 2003, No. 122 (Adj. Sess.), § 128a; amended 2011, No. 109 (Adj.
