Health Care Reform Could Cost Indiana Social Services $25 Million

Last updated on Monday, March 29, 2010

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The leader of the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration says federal health care reform will have an immediate impact of $25 million dollars on Indiana’s Medicaid program.

Secretary Anne Murphy says the new legislation increases the minimum rebate level for most brand name and generic prescription drugs, while any savings that state would realize would be taken by the federal government.

Murphy predicts the state will lose approximately $400 million in rebates over the next 10 years.
