View as PDF

Public Citizen wrote to Reps. Diana DeGette and Fred Upton in response to their solicitation of proposals for health care-related reforms to be considered for inclusion in potential future Cures 2.0 legislation. We urged them to include in any such legislation several proposals to improve patient safety and expand access to medicines by lowering prescription drug prices. Furthermore, it is imperative that any such legislation exclude expanded monopoly protections that keep prices higher for longer and inhibit access to medicines.
