Allowing Imported Drugs

HHS Secretary Alex Azar announced new proposals from the administration that would allow Americans to pay less for high-priced prescription drugs. One enables drug manufacturers to negotiate new contracts to sell lower-priced foreign versions of certain biologics. The other would enable states, wholesalers and pharmacists to import certain FDA-approved drugs from Canada. The proposals are in line with the President’s pledge to lower prescription drug costs for Americans.
