According to a press release from Congressman Bryan Steil, who serves Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District, yesterday he introduced the Plain Prescription Prices Act along with Representatives Nikema Williams (GA-05), Don Bacon (NE-02), and Angie Craig (MN-02). The release states that this legislation would ensure TV commercials for prescription drugs to disclose the list price of the medication they are advertising.
Congressman Steil said:
“Prescription drug prices strain budgets for many families and seniors. One step we can take to lower prices is to improve transparency and provide consumers with the information they need to make an informed choice. I am proud to co-lead the Plain Prescription Prices Act, which requires drug manufacturers to disclose drug prices in consumer ads. This simple move can increase transparency and provide patients with the options they deserve.”
