He suggested “a solution based on market principles, not creating another government bureaucracy,” recognizing four objectives that should be met:
• State drug purchases should go through the MMP master contract which is administered through one contact point.
• The Ohio State authority should have unrestricted authority to review all drugs, purchases and SME payments contracts.
• SMEs must be candidates.
• Nondisclosure agreements on drug pricing with the state must be prevented.
