Webinar: Tackling Prescription Drug Prices: A Closer Look at State Policy Successes

Monday, June 19, 12:30-2:00 PM ET

The high cost of prescription drugs have commanded national attention, yet there have not been any successful national solutions. At the state level,there were over 80 Rx price-related bills introduced in 2017, but very few have crossed the finish line. This webinar, open only to state officials, will feature drug price legislation that has been enacted.  State officials responsible for passage and implementation will discuss the key provisions of the legislation, as well as the strategies that enabled success, and any anticipated implementation challenges.
