February 12, 2018

This week's installment of Politico's Prescription Pulse breaks down the details leaked about the drug pricing proposals included in the new White House budget request.  Thought to be included in the proposals are a speanding cap on out-of-pocket drug payments for serniors, free generic dugs for lower-income individiuals, and a pilot program allowing some states to establish limited formularies.  CP3 Director Walid Gellad is quoted in the newsletter, noting that the proposals may not do enough to reduce the list prices of pharmaceuticals.
