NYLCare Health Plans of the Mid-Atlantic has paid the state of Maryland a $40,000 fine for limiting patients with chronic illnesses to 30-day supplies of medication. A 1997 state law allows patients access to 90-day supplies. NYLCare is revising its policies to allow members to obtain 90-day supplies at pharmacies and by mail.
