A $1.30 per prescription tax will be applied to the consumer at the discretion of each pharmacy, although it is expected that most pharmacies will pass this added cost onto the consumer. Please check with your individual pharmacies for their policy. These additional funds are being collected to help raise the $36 million to cover the rising Medicaid costs in the state. This tax is expected to stay in effect for all of 2003 and drop to $0.65 per prescription in 2004.
