Understanding The Democrats’ Drug Pricing Package
Health Affairs Forefront
In this post, I first provide a broad overview of the three main pillars of the IRA’s drug pricing reforms—considering their differences from prior legislative proposals, as well as clarifying what other reforms are not included in the package. I then look backward, situating these drug pricing reforms within the context of efforts over the last 30 years to establish drug pricing negotiation programs. Finally, I look ahead with a focus on the IRA itself to consider the next steps for this legislation.
