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.
Read Loren's report, Prescription for Price: Pharmacy Reform in Ohio Medicaid, posted on the Center for Community Solutions website. Follow Loren on Twitter.
