Take Action: Email Your Legislator to Stop Big Pharma’s Latest Price Gouging Move

June 20, 2019

We’ve told you about big Pharma’s brazen attempt to gut one of the last remaining protection for patients against runaway drug prices.

Now the most profitable industry in the world is quietly pushing a bill through the state legislature that would cripple pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), which negotiate lower drug costs for North Carolinians.

The powerful pharmaceutical lobby knows that the public is furious about rising drug costs.  They have been trying to put the blame on PBMs - despite the fact that PBMs job is to represent the financial interests of patients in the negotiation. But we know that only one party sets list price of drugs and that is the pharmaceutical manufacturers themselves. 

We cannot let big pharma use the law to eliminate our only advocate in price negotiations. 

Here’s what you can do to help: Write your legislator and ask them to oppose the language in HB 534.
