The Truth about Drug Prices


Prices for prescription drugs have skyrocketed over the past several years. In fact, prices for prescription drugs are growing faster than prices for any other part of health care.

Did you know?

Drug costs are a major factor in the rising cost of health care. High initial drug prices, especially for new specialty drugs, and price increases for both existing brand and generic drugs threaten patient access to treatment by making drug therapies unaffordable for many Americans. They also challenge providers’ abilities to provide important drug therapies within the hospital and doctor’s office.

The American Hospital Association is proud to be a member of the Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing (CSRxP) – a diverse coalition of doctors, hospitals, pharmacists, employers, health plans, seniors, patients, consumers and others coming together to promote common ground and solutions. We must all work together to increase access to high-quality, affordable treatments and cures for patients.
