Then Now
We are in a new era of medicine where breakthrough science
is transforming care with innovative treatment approaches...
Medicines made of chemical
compounds
Medicines treat broad diseases
Radiation and chemotherapy to
treat cancer
Medicines made from living cells
Medicines targeted to specific
patient based on genetic makeup
Immunotherapy that harnesses
body’s own immune system to
fight disease
CAR T-cell therapy

Treating people with one or more chronic condition consumes
90 cents of every dollar spent on health care.
…and enabling us to more effectively treat chronic disease,
the biggest cost driver.

Hospitals also benefit from misaligned incentives in the supply
chain.
An analysis found that 320
hospitals mark up some
medicine prices at least 1000%
Nearly one in five hospitals marks
up medicine prices to 700% or
more of their acquisition cost
If a hospital purchased a medicine
for $150, a 700% markup could
result in patients being billed
$1,050 for that medicine

Hospital spending is much higher
than prescription drug spending.
Yet patients pay more out-of-pocket
for medicines than for hospital care.
And patients face higher out-of-pocket costs at the pharmacy
counter even though total spending on hospital care is far higher.

The use of four or more cost-
sharing tiers is becoming more
common on employer plans
22
Cost sharing for nearly 1 in 5 brand
prescriptions is based on list price
More than half of commercially insured
patients’ out-of-pocket spending for brand
medicines is based on the full list price
And too often negotiated savings do not make their way
to patients.

PROMOTE VALUE-DRIVEN HEALTH CARE
• Remove barriers restricting information companies can share with insurers.
• Reform regulations discouraging companies from offering discounts tied to outcomes.
• Modify Medicaid best price requirements.
MODERNIZE THE DRUG DISCOVERY AND DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
• Modernize the FDA to keep pace with scientific discovery and increase efficiency of generic approvals
• Promote and incentivize generic competition.
EMPOWER CONSUMERS AND LOWER OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS
• Provide patients with access to negotiated rebates.
• Address affordability challenges in the deductible.
• Make more information on health care out-of-pocket costs and quality available to patients.
IMPROVE TRADE AGREEMENTS
• Enforce existing trade agreements.
• Ensure new trade agreements recognize value of innovative medicines.
Prescription Medicines: Costs in Context www.phrma.org/cost
ADDRESS MARKET DISTORTIONS
• Address burdensome regulations that distort programs like the 340B Drug Pricing program.
Collectively, these market-based reforms can make medicines
more affordable and accessible.
