CINDY ELLEN RUSSELL / CRUSSELL@STARADVERTISER.COM Tim Dayton, general manager for GEICO in Hawaii, holds up a bottle of homeopathic topical spray, a repackaged medication that was prescribed to a GEICO?client in an auto accident case. The repackaging company charged $416 for the bottle, but at a recent legislative hearing Dayton said a similar product online costs about $18. Lawmakers are considering ways to rein in the excessive charges, which have resulted in hundreds of disputes between repackaging companies and the state.
