Pharmacy association raises concerns that inequitable reimbursements could be increasing prescription costs across PA
HARRISBURG (April 16, 2018) – Auditor General Eugene DePasquale today told members of the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association that he will look into concerns that inequitable pharmacy reimbursements might be increasing prescription drug costs for consumers.
“For seniors and many other Pennsylvanians, prescription drugs are a big part of their health care costs,” DePasquale said. “I will do everything within my authority to help hold down the cost of health care because it is the right thing to do.
“In the coming weeks, I will be meeting with all of the parties involved, including the Community Pharmacy Caucus in the General Assembly, to gather additional information on this topic before I move forward.”
