Florida Prescription Drug Export Bond

Florida Prescription Drug Export Bond

A new bill titled HB 19 allows Canadian suppliers that are a manufacturer, wholesale distributor, or pharmacy a licensed or permitted under Canadian law to manufacture, distribute, or dispense prescription drugs to export them to Florida under the new Canadian Prescription Drug Importation Program.

The new law requires vendors that the Agency for Health Care Administration hires to manage services under this program to post a surety bond to mitigate the financial consequences of the potential acts of malfeasance or misfeasance or fraudulent or dishonest acts committed by the vendor, any of its employees, or its subcontractors.

The new law also specifies that an international prescription drug wholesale distributor is subject to the permit requirements for wholesale prescription drug distributors. A surety bond or other security or evidence of a bond posted in any other state in the amount of $100,000 is required to obtain the permit. If the distributor’s annual gross receipts in the previous tax year are $10 million or less, the bond must be for $25,000.
