Key term:

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


How about we wait to get outraged until we know And know why?
Tell those folks who are having to pay exorbitant epi pen costs for the next couple months not to get outraged. SMH. The party of compassion my ass.

Did the price of epi pens go down?

Rhetorical question. My husband uses them. Price has not gone down.

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.

Definitely more people going into insulin shock without controlling doses of medication. That means hospitals and in today's era exposure to Wuhan Covid-19 virus.

It’s gone, Dumbass.

Why not evaluate it before shitcanning it to evaluate it later?
You are joking right? I mean, that's what Trump did to all the Obama rules right?

:lmao:


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

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.

Since the EO doesn't affect anything till the end of the month prices have not been reduced by Medicare providers.


The Biden administration is likely to scrap the rule when it takes office but might pursue other ways to let Medicare negotiate drug prices.

Under the MFN rule, starting next year for the 50 drugs that Part B spends the most on, CMS will pay no more “than the lowest price that drug manufacturers receive in other similar countries,” plus a flat add-on instead of a percentage of the drug’s cost. Currently, 340B hospitals are paid at a rate of average sales price (ASP) minus 22.5 percent for such drugs, and CMS will soon publish a rule in which it might lower reimbursement to an ASP minus 28.7 percent effective rate. CMS will phase-in the new MFN payment rate over four years.

6.2% over 4 years is 1.55% a year in price reduction projections.

You're right after what China Joey Xi just signed off on, prices of Epi pens, and injectable insulin will rise to untenable prices....

Aren't we discussing injectable insulins? Yes both are injectable insulins. Ozempic is administered at 0.5 mg/week, while Lantus is administered from 10 units to 50 units/day.
Epi pens (epinephrine) are used when theres allergic/anaphylatic ractions to bee stings, penicillin, peanuts, etc....
Class is now closed....

CCP Biden will lower the costs, but only to illegals.

Biden will give Americans both middle fingers like we were a female Senate staffer
