High Drug Spending: What's the Prescription?

After a period of moderation, prescription drug prices are rising and are a leading driver of overall healthcare cost increases. These growing costs have quickly become a high profile healthcare value issue that has garnered significant media attention and can lead to affordability problems for consumers.

The Hub held a webinar on Feb. 19, 2016, that provided an in-depth discussion on the mechanics of drug pricing, reasons for recent price increases and toolsets available for advocates to address these issues.
