The Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing, of which the AHA is a founding member, today released a digital and television ad urging Congress to pass the Creating and Restoring Equal Access to Equivalent Samples Act to lower drug prices. The ad is running on CNN and Fox in Washington, DC, and on Facebook and Twitter. The CREATES Act (S. 974/H.R. 2212) would allow generic drug manufacturers facing certain anticompetitive delay tactics to bring an action in federal court for injunctive relief. More than 40 organizations, including the AHA, last month urged House and Senate leaders to pass the legislation.
