Effective July 1, 2013, the Florida Legislature revised subsection 440.13(12), Florida Statutes, regarding the reimbursement of repackaged or relabeled prescription medication. The Division of Workers' Compensation has received numerous questions concerning this change. The Division has prepared a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document to share these inquiries and the Division's responses. A copy of the FAQ and the statutory revision are provided below for your reference. The Division is considering whether rule revisions will be necessary to implement the changes made pursuant to CS/SB 662. A rulemaking workshop may be scheduled soon so that stakeholders and the Division can discuss these issues and consider any appropriate rule revisions. Please contact Eric Lloyd at 850-413-1689 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions or concerns regarding this change
