recent survey of over 3,000 brand name prescription medications found that prices have more than doubled for over 60 drugs since 2014. As the prices of prescription medications continue to rise, physicians have a responsibility to educate their patients.

TruthinRx.org allows patients to learn who controls the prices of their medications and why those prices are increasing. The interactive site provides facts, informational resources and ways that you and your patients can take action to increase drug price transparency.

Have you ever notice the difference in charges for a cash paying customer at the pharmacy ? Do you have one of those generic Rx Discount Cards ?  Does your healthplan get bulk rates ?  Why is a mailorder pharmacy less expensive, and why do some healthplans offer a no copay plan if you order through their own mail order plan ?

Your Story about Your Drug Costs
YYO . 
Prescription medications aren’t like other consumer products. Like food, shelter, and water, they can be a matter of life or death. Yet, patients are left in the dark as to why the price of medicine and their out-of-pocket costs are rising.

The costs of prescription drugs are often negotiated by drug players who aren’t required to disclose their pricing agreements. These middlemen turn a profit, while patients continue to pay a high premium.

If pharmaceutical companies aren’t required to explain their rising prescription drug prices, it could eventually make health care unaffordable for many Americans. Help us protect the future of health care.
