ALBANY – New York State Attorney General Letitia James announced Thursday the conclusion of an investigation into pharmacies across the state that found many have failed to post the costs of drugs to consumers, as required by law.

As a result of the investigation, James’ Office sent cease and desist letters to 44 pharmacies found to be in violation of the law, mandating compliance with consumer protection laws that require that pharmacies maintain a list of their prices for the 150 most commonly prescribed drugs







State law also mandates that pharmacies update this drug retail price list at least weekly, distribute the list to consumers upon request, and post a sign notifying consumers of the availability of the list.
