More than 30 million Americans are now unemployed. These folks need all the help our nation can offer. Yet, disturbingly, the Trump administration just finalized a rule that will dramatically spike pharmacy costs.
The rule allows insurers to disregard manufacturer coupons when calculating patients’ out-of-pocket expenses. This will increase what patients must spend before their insurance kicks in, potentially making critical prescriptions too expensive to fill.
For many Americans, high out-of-pocket costs already drive many to skip needed medicines.
