The Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing, of which the AHA is a founding member, yesterday released a new ad urging Congress to keep its commitment to lower drug prices. Seventeen organizations, including the AHA, this month urged Congress to resist any attempts from the pharmaceutical industry to undo during the lame duck session provisions included in the Bipartisan Budget Act to make prescription drugs more affordable for seniors. The legislation closes the Medicare Part D coverage gap or “doughnut hole” one year earlier and requires higher drug manufacturer discounts on brand name prescription drugs while enrollees are in the coverage gap.
