Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to approve bipartisan legislation Senator Hassan cosponsored to prohibit so-called “pharmacy gag clauses” that conceal prescription drug prices from patients. This bill will now head to the President’s desk. See below for a statement from Senator Hassan on the legislation passing the House. The press release with additional information from when it passed the Senate can be found here.
“I am pleased that the House has voted to approve this bipartisan, common-sense legislation to better protect hard-working Granite Staters and Americans from being taken advantage of when they go buy a prescription at the pharmacy,” Senator Hassan said. “The skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs is impacting far too many people in New Hampshire and across the country, and this legislation will help ensure that patients have more information to purchase the most affordable option for their medications. I urge the President to sign this bipartisan bill into law without delay.”
