Event Recap: How Federal Policies Impact Innovation and Costs of Pharmaceutical Therapies

The Bipartisan Policy Center is hosting three educational forums to inform the national conversation on affordable medicines. The purpose of these forums is to seek an understanding of how private sector decisions and public sector policies impact the prices of drugs and their costs to the health care system. They will highlight what is known about the present system and explore the full range of viewpoints on this issue. BPC hopes each convening will explore how best to support medical innovation while ensuring access and affordability for patients.

The second forum addressed how existing federal statutes and regulations impact pharmaceutical innovation, market competition, and costs.
