Drug Price Transparency Model Legislation and Resources

NASHP developed two versions of a model drug cost transparency bill to enable states to take a comprehensive approach to unlock the black box of pharmacy pricing and increase consumer awareness.

Comprehensive Transparency Model Legislation: This bill includes language detailing the data components. Download the following reporting templates to capture the data required:

Manufacturer Report for New Drugs

Pharmacy Benefit Managers Report

Wholesale Drug Distributor Report

Insurance Issuer Report

Enabling Transparency Model Legislation: This version of the transparency model legislation does not have the provisions that detail the data components.
