We’re North Carolinians for Affordable Rx, and we’re fighting for affordable, accessible, quality prescription drug coverage for all North Carolina families. We know health care can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. We’re here to cut through the misleading claims peddled by fast-talking special interest lobbyists and tell the truth about the real ways to make Rx more affordable.
We’re glad local elected officials want to lower health care costs, but some proposals in Raleigh would actually increase costs and let special interests line their own pockets with hard-earned dollars pulled right from North Carolina pocketbooks. We believe in a competitive prescription drug marketplace, because competition is what drives lower drug costs – and bureaucratic, anti-competitive, red-tape legislation only hurts North Carolina patients.
It’s just a fact – Big Pharma alone sets Rx list prices. Our representatives in Raleigh should hold them accountable for their pricing strategies and not let them shift the blame to everyone else in the Rx supply chain except themselves.
New Research Highlights PSAO Role in Supporting Independent Pharmacies
Despite having a “mom & pop” reputation, nearly 83% of independent pharmacies have the backing of heavy-weight, unregulated PSAOs to negotiate contracts with other parties in the pharmaceutical supply and payment chain.
It’s time our elected officials implement the same level of reporting requirements to PSAOs as they do for other entities in health care.
