Drug price transparency is overdue
The games that pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), health insurers and manufacturers play leave patients and physicians in the dark when it comes to drug prices. These players profit while patients are often shocked with high prices, making necessary medications inaccessible for many. Patients have the right to know why their prescription drugs cost what they do. We need drug pricing transparency, now.
