    Recently Montana Governor Steve Bullock (D-MT) signed HB 276. With his signature, Montana becomes only the fourth state to enact such sweeping legislation.

In short, the bill will allow a pharmacy in a network the option to decline to provide drugs or services if they are paid less the cost to acquire the drug.
