Applicability of chapter.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, pharmaceutical programs as defined herein shall obtain drugs through the program established pursuant to this chapter, unless a particular pharmaceutical program can purchase its pharmaceuticals at a special rate, which is lower than the savings and rebates that could be realized under this chapter, through an agreement or federal or state government public health program or a contract currently in place for the purchasing of pharmaceuticals by a pharmaceutical program in this state.
