Arkansas Resolution Would Increase Prescription Drug Costs

(Washington, D.C.) — Pharmaceutical Care Management Association (PCMA) President and CEO Mark Merritt released the following statement on Arkansas Senate Resolution 9:

“This resolution would raise prescription drug costs for Arkansas’s patients, employers, state government, and taxpayers and do nothing to improve the quality of pharmacy benefits. The state should be encouraging market-based solutions to reduce drug costs, not giving special protections to the drugstore lobby.”
