Page 423, after line 41, insert:

"O. The Department of Corrections and the VCU Health System and UVA Health System shall collaborate on a plan to ensure that inmates with long-term or high-cost prescription drug needs receive treatment from a federal 340-B covered entity. The Department shall begin development of the plan as soon as is practicable and report to the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by January 1, 2020."


(This amendment requires DOC and VCU and UVA Health Systems to report on a plan to treat inmates with high-cost chronic conditions with drugs purchased through the federal 340-B program as much as possible.)
