Prescription Drug Prices Going up in 2020
New Year. Higher drug prices.
With the beginning of 2020 comes higher costs for prescription drugs. According to the New York Post, drug makers have hiked US list prices on more than 50 drugs. The total prescription medicines that will cost more this year will be over 250.
How does this affect you?
Joining me as I guest-hosted the Moon Griffon Show was Dr. Katie Jarvis, who launched Bed Beacon, a platform and efficiency tool designed to streamline the system through cost reduction and transparency.
She gives great insight into the field of prescription medicine, how these companies are raising their prices, and how politics can play a role in actually making these drugs more affordable.
