Trump just claimed a win in cutting back prescription drug prices, but the reality of high drug prices is a lot more complicated

“It’s led to drug companies and pharmaceutical benefit managers pointing fingers at one another to assign blame for why Americans are experiencing high drug prices” writes Lydia Ramsey for businessinsider.com. “Pfizer & others should be ashamed that they have raised drug prices for no reason,” Trump said in an initial tweet.President Donald Trump is on a crusade to lower prescription drug prices.For example, the list prices of diabetes medication insulin have been increasing, but at a net level — the amount drugmakers actually take home — prices have fallen.Unless a patient isn’t insured or hasn’t hit their deductible, they won’t face the full list price.
