TOPIC: The Rising Costs of the Pharmaceuticals and Legislative Measures we can Implement to Help
One major area of concern in the last decade has been prescription drug pricing.
Drug prices continue to climb year after year, according to 46brooklyn Research, a nonprofit company that seeks to improve public access to U.S. drug pricing data.
AbbVie, Bristol Myers Squibb, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and other major pharmaceutical companies are raising their prices by a median of 4.6%, according to the analysis
from 46brooklyn. All told, over 500 drugs will cost more this year, the research firm's data shows.
Drug prices are higher in the U.S. than in other developed countries, where governments typically negotiate with manufacturers to control costs.
