The Injured Workers' Bar Association is a statewide organization of lawyers dedicated to protecting the rights of the injured and disabled working people of New York. We wholeheartedly support Senate Bill S7245 and Assembly Bill A8117. This proposed legislation will provide workers' compensation claimants with greater flexibility by affording them the ability to fill their prescriptions at any pharmacy registered as resident, in-state pharmacies with the New York State Department of Education. By allowing injured workers the ability to fill prescriptions at the pharmacy of their choice it not only offers a convenience but has the added benefit of promoting economic gain for small businesses. This proposed legislation is consistent with the mission of our organization the true spirit of the Workers' Compensation Law. We endorse it.
