Trump signs bills lifting pharmacist 'gag clauses' on drug prices
LINK

quote:

President Donald Trump signed two bills at the White House on Wednesday aimed at lowering pharmaceutical drug prices by promoting greater disclosure in drug pricing.


quote:

The two bills the president signed — the Know the Lowest Price Act and the Patients' Right to Know Drug Prices Act — are meant to prevent "gag clauses" in agreements between pharmacies and pharmacy benefit managers, the middlemen who administer prescription drug programs for insurance companies, which pharmacists say kept them from disclosing cheaper drug options to consumers.


quote:

Under the new legislation, pharmacists will be allowed, though not required, to tell patients about lower-cost options.

Racist. It’s just racist. There’s a subliminal racist message that only progs can surmise

Just give ‘em time.

If the bills do what is represented in the OP, these are good bills.

Who sponsored them? Anyone know?

Some states and municipalities have pharmacy gag order bans, but the Patient Right to Know Drug Prices Act, sponsored by Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins, addresses banning the practice of gag orders on a federal level. The Know the Lowest Price Act, sponsored by Michigan Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow, prohibits Medicare drug plans from putting a gag clause on a pharmacy in their contracts.

Why should they? It's a good law.


...that is, unless you're against government regulation of private industry on principle.

It is. What Trumpf was signaling was that his policies will make crack cheaper so it will destroy more black communities. THAT is the mind of a racist!

This is good.

Big pharma is demonized a lot by people who have no idea Wtf they’re talking about.

But transparency is pricing is the single biggest way to help in the short term.
