A measure that would restrict out-of-pocket costs for specialty-tier drugs was unanimously approved Wednesday by the state Senate in Maryland. The bill covers drugs for chronic conditions including lupus, multiple sclerosis, hemophilia, HIV and certain cancers. The measure limits copays to $150 for a prescription of 30 days. The House and Senate must unify their versions of the measure before it could advance to the governor's desk.
