“Gag clause” legislation headed to Trump’s desk for signing

Two Senate bills that will make it easier for patients to get the lowest price on prescription drugs were approved by the House and are now headed to President Trump’s desk for signing.

The Patient Right to Know Drug Prices Act, S. 2554 (115), and the Know the Lowest Price Act, S. 2553 (115), prohibit “gag clauses” that prevent pharmacists from telling customers whether they can save money by paying for prescription drugs out-of-pocket rather than using their health insurance. S. 2553 bars gag clauses in Medicare Advantage and Part D plans, while S. 2554 targets private health plans, including those in the Obamacare market.
