Is appropriately prescribed and considered safe and effective for treating the medical condition of the enrollee.


The provisions of subsection 1 do not:


Apply to coverage for any drug that is prescribed for a use that is different from the use for which that drug has been approved for marketing by the Food and Drug Administration;




The organization from charging a deductible, copayment or coinsurance for the provision of benefits for prescription drugs to the enrollee or from establishing, by contract, limitations on the maximum coverage for prescription drugs;
