     1    Section 1. Section 280-a of the public health law is amended by adding
     2  two new subdivisions 3 and 4 to read as follows:
     3    3. No pharmacy  benefit  manager  shall,  with  respect  to  contracts
     4  between  such pharmacy benefit manager and a pharmacy or, alternatively,
     5  such pharmacy benefit manager and a pharmacy's contracting  agent,  such
     6  as a pharmacy services administrative organization:
     7    (a)  prohibit  or penalize a pharmacist or pharmacy from disclosing to
     8  an individual purchasing a prescription medication  information  regard-
     9  ing:
    10    (1) the cost of the prescription medication to the individual, or
    11    (2)  the  availability  of  any therapeutically equivalent alternative
    12  medications or alternative methods of purchasing the prescription  medi-
    13  cation, including but not limited to, paying a cash price; or
    14    (b)  charge or collect from an individual a copayment that exceeds the

    17  cated  costs and the pharmacy benefit manager shall not redact or recoup
    18  the adjudicated cost.
    19    4. Any provision of a contract that violates the  provisions  of  this
    20  section shall be deemed to be void and unenforceable.
    21    §  2.  This  act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall
    22  have become a law.
