President Trump has announced two final rules issued by the Department of Health and Human Services to lower the cost of prescription drugs for American patients. The first rule, the Most Favored Nation Model, will ensure Medicare pays no more than what our peer nations pay for some of the most expensive drugs and gets rid of incentives for your doctor to prescribe higher priced drugs. The rebate rule will end the current system of kickbacks that drives drug prices higher each year by delivering those kickbacks as discounts to patients at the pharmacy counter. Thanks to President Trump, HHS is continuing to deliver on our promise to lower the cost of prescription drugs for Americans patients.
