Sí, tiró para atrás lo de los BMP y se pasó a lo que explico del reembolso de Medicare al precio mínimo negociado con quien sea. Que yo sepa eso sigue ahí. Lo leí durante el fin de semana.
Mareando la perdiz por lo que se ve. ¿No te tientan unas BMY o algo?
White House kills drug rebate proposal
Shares of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) and other healthcare players soared on Thursday in reaction to the Trump administration's reversal on its proposed overhaul of rebates collected by the drug middlemen. The administration i
s instead moving forward with its plan to tie Medicare reimbursement for drugs to the lowest prices paid elsewhere. The news came days after a federal judge dealt a blow to the White House by striking down a rule that would have forced pharmaceutical companies to disclose the list price of their drugs in television ads.
Y en el artículo que enlazas:
"the move will put pressure on other parts of the administration's plan, which is also bad news for pharma. "
Y es peor que lo que yo pensaba:
That proposal would set Medicare's prices for certain drugs based on the prices
other countries pay. It likely "will be the executive order of choice," a source close to the administration said.
Sigo editando, que voy saltando enlaces:
No parece tan malo: latest plan to reduce U.S. drug prices is to import some of the price controls imposed by Europe’s single-payer health care systems. I t would be tied to the prices for the same drugs in other countries — mostly countries in Europe, most of which have single-payer health care systems.
The plan also calls for a new purchasing arrangement for physician-administered drugs. Currently, doctors have to buy the drugs, store them, and hope they can use them and bill Medicare. HHS' proposal would have third-party vendors buy the drugs, then sell them to doctors.
