Lowering Prescription Drug Prices

A challenge in our fight to ensure everyone has access to the healthcare they need is the prices of prescription drugs which have become unreasonably high and unaffordable. The average cost of patented prescription drugs in Canada is 40% lower than it is here in the United States. Allowing the importation of drugs from Canada (which has bi-partisan support) can provide instant relief for folks across North Carolina who are being forced to choose between paying for the medication they need and covering their rent. We also need to empower the federal government to negotiate the prices of brand-name drugs covered by Medicaid. Pharmaceutical companies cannot be allowed to write the rules, unsupervised and unchallenged.
