We need our elected leaders to lower patients’ out-of-pocket cost for innovative prescription drugs.
Unfortunately, Congress is considering radical price-setting bills, similar to H.R. 3, that would allow the policies of foreign governments to set the standard of care for American patients. These foreign policies lead to rationed care and limit access to prescription medicines. These bills could:
- Drastically limit patient access to vital medicines and therapies that are needed to treat cancer, Alzheimer’s, and other devastating diseases.
- Disrupt the doctor-patient relationship by empowering bureaucrats to get between patients and the medicines they need; and
- Do nothing to lower what most seniors and patients are forced to pay for prescription drugs.
Patients need real solutions for lowering drug costs, not political bills that jeopardize patient access to life-saving medicines.
