Lowering Costs of Prescription Drugs

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow continues to fight the rising costs of prescription drugs

Thursday, January 25, 2018

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow has been taking on prescription drug companies to bring down costs. She has introduced bills to give Medicare the power to negotiate prescription drugs for seniors and to increase drug price transparency. Stabenow has also introduced legislation that would allow families to buy safe, low-cost medicine from Canada.

Senator Stabenow recently voted against the nomination of Alex Azar to lead the Department of Health and Human Services after learning the price of some drugs, like insulin, more than doubled under his watch at Eli Lilly.
