Today, UnitedHealth Group released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s drug policy proposal:
“The fundamental issues with prescription drug affordability are the high prices set by and marketing practices of pharmaceutical manufacturers, so we welcome the Administration’s focus on reducing drug costs. UnitedHealth Group remains committed to offering concrete solutions to further protect consumers from rising drug prices and building programs to help make prescription drug costs more affordable, predictable and stable – programs like our industry-first initiative to provide point of sale pharmacy discounts for our commercial customers, and our application of advanced technology to provide drug cost transparency right in the doctor’s office.”
