Eight Republican senators in a letter to PhRMA have asked for “cooperation” from pharmaceutical companies as they work toward solutions to high drug prices, The Hill reports.
“We write today to ask, as the trade association representing the pharmaceutical industry, what solutions does your association have that would increase transparency and directly lower the list price of drugs for consumers?” the group, led by Sen. Rick Scott, wrote.
The legislators in the letter stressed their desire for a more collaborative approach, according to the report.
“Soaring drug prices are a serious problem and a problem Washington should have addressed long ago,” the letter reads.
