US Senate Passes Bill Prohibiting Gag Clauses for PBMs
On Sept. 17, the Senate passed S. 2554, the "Patients Right to
Know Drug Prices Act of 2018," by a vote of 98 to 2. This legislation,
which was introduced by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, would prohibit
health insurers and pharmacy benefit managers from using gag clauses
that prevent pharmacists from sharing with patients the lower cost
options when purchasing medically necessary medication.
