(This amendment reduces the dispensing fee paid to pharmacists from $4.25 to $3.75 per prescription per month. It provides funding to restore one-half of the dispensing fee reduction. A companion amendment in Item 325 captures savings from an initiative to increase the use of over-the-counter non-sedating antihistamines, which will be used to fund a portion of this restored amount.)
