Did You Know Pharmacy Gag Clauses Hide Drug Prices? | This Week in Congress
In 2016, Americans spent nearly $330 billion on retail prescription drugs. $45 billion of those expenses were out of pocket. A bipartisan group of Senators led by Susan Collins (R-ME), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) have introduced two bills to make sure that patients actually have the opportunity to choose the lowest prices for their prescription drugs.
