Health care costs are already far too high for Louisianans. Yet, government action has threatened to raise those costs even higher.

Last year, Louisiana lawmakers considered a bill to attack the free-market tools that work to prevent prescription drug cost increases. Fortunately, some lawmakers stood up for patients in Louisiana and the efforts failed.

The bill’s supporters may try again this legislative session.

By restricting the ability of a third party to negotiate lower drug prices, legislation like this puts Louisianans on the hook to pay more for the prescriptions they rely on.

Lawmakers, regulators, taxpayers, employers, and workers should continue to resist these reckless policies and prevent cost increases for Louisianans.


Sign the petition and tell your lawmaker to prevent prescription drug cost increases.
