Drug Prices in Ohio: What is to Be Done?

Building on several past episodes exploring pharmaceutical access and pricing in Ohio, Dan talks with Loren Anthes of the Center for Community Solutions and Antonio Ciaccia of 46Brooklyn about a paper (PDF) Loren recently circulated offering policy options for Ohio. Topics include ways to slow, set, cap, and regulate prices; patents; the degree to which research and development will (or will not) be affected by caps and controls; the role of pharmacy benefit managers in all of this; and more.
