SENATE UNVEILS PHARMACEUTICAL ACCESS, COST AND TRANSPARENCY (PACT) ACT

Today, the Massachusetts Senate unveiled An Act relative to Pharmaceutical Access, Cost and Transparency (PACT Act), comprehensive pharmaceutical cost control legislation aimed at addressing the high and rapidly increasing costs of prescription drugs.  By connecting the need for greater drug price transparency with policies to improve oversight over the pharmaceutical industry, the legislation will put Massachusetts at the forefront of state‚Äôs efforts to tackle increasing drug costs. It will also reduce drug costs to patients and lower health care costs overall.
