Drug Price Transparency: Planning for Change

Drug Price Transparency: Planning for Change

Prescription pricing transparency regulations aim to level the playing field by offering better insight into drug costs. They are designed to throw light on the true cost of drugs and to ensure that consumers and insurers aren't being gouged. Given the fact that the cost of prescription medications keeps rising and that there is now no overarching federal control, the issue of drug price management is also expected to continue grabbing the attention of the media and state lawmakers.
