Our action on rebates has the potential to be the most sweeping change to how Americans’ drugs are priced at the pharmacy counter, ever, by delivering discounts directly to patients and bringing much-needed transparency.
@SecAzar @WhiteHouse 🤔
Our priorities are elsewhere right now sir.
How about you address the people:
Waiting hours for food
Unable to pay house notes
Waiting to see if their loved one will live
Working to exhaustion serving patients
My parents failed to teach boasting. I wonder why. 🤔
@SecAzar I suspect these changes will have much more impact on the poor countries in that the companies won't lower prices in the US, but will raise them in poor countries. That would fit in with Trump's America first mentality even at the risk of trashing the rest of the world.
Every year, Americans have suffered from drug prices driven constantly upward by a shadowy system of kickbacks, and President Trump is putting an end to that.
With the final rebate rule, President Trump is taking on a broken system, creating incentives to lower list prices and reduce out-of-pocket spending on prescription drugs by delivering discounts directly to Americans at the pharmacy counter.
