Solving the Problem of Unsustainable Pharmaceutical Prices 

The annual U.S. market for prescription drugs exceeds $500 billion, representing almost 17% of all health care expenditures, and it is rising at an unsustainable rate. In 2017, the average American spent $1,100 per year on medications. It is, therefore, no wonder that the public and elected officials are fixated on forging workable policy solutions. This seminar will discuss the many reasons why prescription drugs cost so much in the US and the current options to address the problem.
