EmployersRx Letter to House Leaders on HR 3 – 9.13.21
EmployersRx sent a letter to House leaders expressing support for H.R. 3, the Elijah E. Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act, and urging that all price protections included should be extended to Americans covered by commercial insurance.
H.R. 3 represents the most significant effort to bring down high and increasing drug prices in the country’s history. Critically, it allows all people in the United States, not just Medicare beneficiaries, to have access to lower-priced prescription drugs. We applaud Congress’ leadership in drafting and marking-up this legislation this week and urge swift passage. Further, we urge Congress to ensure that any final legislation sent to the President’s desk include full price protections for the 180 million people covered by commercial insurance.
