PhRMA is looking to kick up a national dialogue about the cost of modern medicine with its “Let’s Talk About Cost” initiative.
“Discussions about costs are important,” Zirkelbach writes. “We recognize that many are struggling to access the medicine they need and have important questions about their medicine costs. And we want to help find the answers.”
The effort seeks to answer questions including:
- If medicine costs are growing more slowly, why doesn’t it feel that way?
- What is driving up my health care costs?
- Why am I paying more than my insurer for my medicine?
- Who decides what I pay for my medicine?
