Patients deserve access to cheaper prescription drugs

Coalition: Coalition to Protect Patient Choice

The Food and Drug Administration sought input for improvements to its generic drug approval process, including for complex generic drugs. Advocates stressed the importance of implementing policies that increase competition among drug companies and reduce barriers to cheaper prescription drugs. It’s time Americans have greater access to more affordable drugs and newly approved generic medicines.

Concerned about the lack of meaningful patient choice resulting from anticompetitive prescription drug practices, such as rebate walls that restrict patients’ access to lower-cost alternatives, advocates wrote to the Food and Drug Administration urging the agency to include patient-friendly policies in its Generic Drug User Fee Amendments.
