President Joe Biden’s United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Thursday stopped executive orders from his predecessor designed to significantly lower prescription drug prices for Americans, including insulin and epinephrine.
The new administration will apparently re-evaluate the executive action from President Donald Trump toward the end of March. It remains unclear if it will be reinstated.

“The HHS Thursday froze the former Trump administration’s December drug policy that requires community health centers to pass on all their insulin and epinephrine discount savings to patients,” Bloomberg Law reported Thursday. “Centers that don’t pass on the savings wouldn’t qualify for federal grants.”
“This freeze is part of the Biden administration’s large-scale effort announced this week that will scrutinize the Trump administration’s health policies,” the report noted. “If the previous administration’s policies raise ‘fact, law, or policy’ concerns, the Biden HHS will delay them and consult with the Office of Management and Budget about other actions.”
A report for Bloomberg Government said the Biden administration is on a “different page” about curbing drug prices than the Trump administration, noting of the Biden team awaiting “at least a dozen lawsuits … over Trump-era moves to lower drug prices”:
~Snip~
“Under this order,” Trump added, “the price of insulin for affected patients will come down to just pennies a day, pennies a day from numbers that you weren’t even able to think about. It’s a massive cost savings.”
Trump said providers “should not be receiving discounts for themselves while charging their poorest patients massive full prices.”
Along with the order ending the “shadowy system of kickbacks by middlemen,” another order would allow states, wholesalers, and pharmacies to offer “safe and legal importation of prescription drugs from Canada and other countries where the price for the identical drug is incredibly lower,” Trump underscored.



Comment:
Biden is proving to be an absolute idiot and a tool of the Trump haters. He doesn't even care if he hurts the people just so he can erase everything Trump has done.
“This freeze is part of the Biden administration’s large-scale effort announced this week that will scrutinize the Trump administration’s health policies,” - Translated: This is part of the ongoing effort to punish the citizens of the US particularly those who voted for Trump and reward the people who paid for us to get elected.
Unwittingly this move also punishes Biden voters, just as canceling the Keystone project. Glad they will feel the pain also., especially those few in the Blue Sanctuary Plantation cities that voted for him.
Don’t be surprised when the quisling press corps refuses to stand up for the American citizen. They just continue to sell their souls.

The prices never did adjust down after Trump's worthless EO.
The Washington Post: Trump Issued Another Toothless Executive Order On Drug Prices President Trump proclaimed yesterday that he’ll go even bigger and bolder on a long-touted effort to lower drug prices in the United States. But he has yet to put any teeth into the effort, nearly two years after first announcing it. In a move widely regarded as a political play seven weeks before the election, Trump announced via tweet he had signed an executive order aiming to lower drug prices in the Medicare program through what is known as “the most favored nation policy.” If implemented, such an order would require drug makers to accept the lowest price from the government for medicines paid by comparably wealthy countries in Europe and elsewhere — an aggressive move the pharmaceutical industry is fighting vociferously. (Paige Winfield Cunningham with Alexandra Ellerbeck, 9/14)

Perspectives: Trump’s Drug-Pricing Order; Pharmaceutical Executives; Insulin; California’s Drug Market


  • Despite political claims to the contrary, insulin prices are not dropping as a result of President Donald Trump’s actions leading up to the presidential election of 2020.

Insulin prices continue to dominate the national discussion and remain a divisive topic in the midst of the political debate over drug pricing policy reform.

The common understanding is that U.S. insulin prices have been jacked up to an unconscionable level and that needs to change, but the details on how to address this problem are anything but clear.

Thanks. When it heard about it I wondered if it was just propaganda or if Dumps corrupt ass had found a way to monetize it.

It will take an act of Congress to get the prices to decline by buying in bulk and reselling to the healthcare operations that distribute it. The problem is the capitalist not the govt.

We already do know, you're just in denial.

Some people can die within minutes if they don't have those medicines. They are absolutely necessary. And Biden just jacked up the price.

I doubt if a President has the power to order a slash in prices

It was all for show

Not sure what the trump EO of December 23, 2020 actually did after reading the EO, though did sound promising in stated intent. Doubt the health centers were the problem, but doubt it without some evidence or testimony or comment not provided in the EO. Re-evaluated in 30 days, eh? Guess we will see.

But, to be serious - it's on hold. Did Trump put stuff on hold or did he shitcan it?
