2011 ORS § 414.330¹
Legislative findings on prescription drugs

The Legislative Assembly finds that:

(1) The cost of prescription drugs in the medical assistance program is growing and will soon be unsustainable;

(2) The benefit of prescription drugs when appropriately used decreases the need for other expensive treatments and improves the health of Oregonians; and

(3) Providing the most effective drugs in the most cost-effective manner will benefit both patients and taxpayers. [2001 c.897 §1; 2009 c.595 §298a]

Note: 414.330 (Legislative findings on prescription drugs) to 414.334 (Practitioner-Managed Prescription Drug Plan for medical assistance program) were enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but were not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 414 or any series therein by legislative action.
