A recent Health Affairs blog post outlines a new drug pricing package introduced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a deal the author describes as “the most far-reaching drug pricing reform in recent memory.”
According to the post, the Health Subcommittee of the Energy and Commerce Committee is set to hold a hearing on the proposal Wednesday, Sept. 25.
“In general, the House package represents a far more ambitious vision for drug pricing reform than has been advanced by either the administration or the Senate thus far,” the post states. “It remains to be seen whether the administration will support it, however, or whether this may galvanize Republicans to support the seemingly more moderate Senate package.”
