Supporting Independent Pharmacies
I believe that it's important for our State to support independent New Jersey pharmacies. That's why I've created SupportNJPharmacies.com, a place where independent pharamcy owners can report the challenges and problems they've faced due to PBMs in New Jersey.
Have you experienced an issue related to a PBM in your area? Submit a complaint using the form below to let us know more.
I'm also committed to addressing the problems that face our independent pharmacy community, which is why I've sponsored the following bills:
- S728 / A3717: Improving PBM Transparency and Accountability (Referred to Senate Commerce Committee on January 9, 2018)
- S2690/2727 / A3993: Eliminating “Clawbacks” and “Gag Clauses” (Approved by Senate and Sent to Assembly for 2nd Reading on February 25, 2019)
- S429 / A2383: “Pharmacy Audit Bill of Rights” (Referred to Senate Commerce Committee on January 9, 2018)
- S961 / A2590: Allowing All Pharmacies to Dispense Prescriptions for Medicaid MCOs (Referred to Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee on January 16, 2018)
To lend your voice in support of any or all of these bills, I encourage you to contact your state representatives by email to let them know your opinion. You can find your state Senator and Assemblymembers by finding your municipality on this list.
Please feel free to CC me at SenGopal@NJLeg.org on any relevant correspondence you share with other legislators, and don't hesitate to contact our office with any questions at (732) 695-3371.
I welcome your feedback on these and any other legislation I've sponsored, and appreciate your support in combatting abusive PBM practices in our State. Thank you for your efforts to treat and serve New Jersey's residents.
