LB442, introduced by Sen. John McCollister of Omaha, allows for medical synchronization if medication:
• is covered by the patient’s health benefit plan or has been approved by a formulary exception process;
• meets the prior authorization or utilization management criteria;
• treats a chronic illness;
• can be safely split into short-fill periods; and
• is not a Schedule II controlled substance.

The bill was approved on a 46-0 vote.
