Drug Pricing Transparency: How And Where You’ll Be Impacted

by SAFPhIR Team

States and the federal government are both reacting strongly — 2016 saw a record number of policy initiatives aimed at curbing price increases and demanding financial explanations from manufacturers, health plans, and pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), often under the guise of transparency.  Each of these three policy areas carried its own distinct features, commonly replicated across state lines where bills were introduced.
