INDIANA (Indiana's NewsCenter) - The new health care reform bill could cost Indiana dearly according to the Secretary of the State's Family and Social Services Administration.

According to Anne Murphy the state has negotiated some of the most favorable prescription drug rebates in the nation for the Indiana Medicaid Program.

Murphy says the savings the state has achieved will now be confiscated by the federal government.

She went on to say in 2011, her office estimates the state will lose $25 million in rebates alone.
