Position Paper: House Drug Price Negotiation Bill – H.R. 3
Americans pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. According to a March 29, 2021 report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), in 2020 Americans paid two to four times more for 20 brand-named drugs than people in Canada, France and Australia.
To address this, Representatives Frank Pallone (NJ), Richard Neal (MA) and Bobby Scott (VA) introduced the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act (H.R. 3) on April 22, 2021.
