In California, the Department of Corporations has refused Kaiser Permanente's bid to drop coverage of Viagra. Kaiser, which argued that the expense unfairly forces all members to pay higher premiums, has made the same request in all states it operates; 12 have agreed. Six other plans in California have also asked for state approval to remove Viagra from their formularies.
