Cutting Drug Prices in Half
A bottle of insulin costs $6 to make and in some countries sells for $12 a bottle. In the US it can be as high as $350 per bottle. New research shows that nearly 25% of Diabetic Americans have been forced to ration insulin because they can't afford it. This issue hits home for me because my dad is a type 1 diabetic. Simply put, we are being ripped off.
Allow Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices with the Medicare Drug Price Negotiation Act.
Allow patients to buy low-cost prescription drugs from other countries with the Affordable and Safe Prescription Drug Importation Act.
Pass the Prescription Drug Price Relief Act, which ties prices to the median drug price in five major countries: Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Japan.
