Annual Report to Senate Finance Committee & House Health & Government Operations Committee due Dec. 31, beginning 2021 (Chapter 692, Acts of 2019; Code Health - General Article, secs. 21-2C-01 through 21-2C-14).

In July 2019, the Prescription Drug Affordability Board was authorized by the General Assembly (Chapter 692, Acts of 2019).

In conjunction with the Prescription Drug Affordability Stakeholder Council, the Board identifies circumstances under which the cost of a prescription drug product may create or has created affordability challenges for the State health care system and patients; and establishes criteria that the Board will use to set an upper payment limit for a prescription drug product after considering certain factors.
