PRESS CALL: Friday at 12:15 ET, CAP President Neera Tanden on New Reforms to Combat Rising Prescription Drug Costs
Washington, D.C. — Tomorrow, the Center for American Progress will release a comprehensive new report that outlines a set of recommendations on public- and private-sector reforms to curb rising drug costs.
We invite members of the media to join a press call with CAP President Neera Tanden to discuss the proposals in the new report. Please join us on Friday, September 18, from 12:15 p.m. ET to 12:45 p.m. ET. Call-in details are below.
Nearly half of all Americans take a prescribed drug in any given month. And drug prices are now rising at a rapid enough pace that they are affecting the overall rate of health care cost growth. It is therefore not surprising that public opinion polls indicate that consumers across the political spectrum are demanding reforms to lower drug prices at unprecedented levels. CAP’s report recognizes that enough is enough and that the time has come for the public and private sectors to come together and implement changes to halt sky-high drug prices.
