Is Your Access to Affordable Medication in Danger?

This month's newsletter from the Campaign for Personal Prescription Importation (CPPI) provides some interesting insights into recent Senate committee hearings on the nomination of Alex Azar to head the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Alex Azar, a former top executive with pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly and Co., which has staunchly opposed drug importation, told Senators at the hearing that lowering drug prices would be one of his top priorities. However, when Senators including Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) raised the subject of importation, Azar avoided direct questioning on the topic.

Rand Paul, the Republican Senator from Kentucky supported importation of prescription medication and further denounced false claims of safety issues as "frankly, not true". He identified the real issue to be "Big Pharma is manipulating the system to keep profits high."

Senator Paul further challenged Azar to propose a plan for ensuring safety through importation and steps to implement or he would not be able to support Azar's nomination and quoted the President during the hearing, "Allowing consumers access to imported safe and dependable drugs from overseas will bring more options to consumers."
