“And time for Democrats to deliver on our promise of Medicare negotiation to address soaring medication costs. Our proposal responds to rampant prescription price gouging in America with an American solution: negotiation and competition,” said Congressman Lloyd Doggett (TX-35). “This legislation, sponsored by most Democratic House Members, will repeal and replace the Republican-imposed prohibition of negotiation and authorize expanded use of generic competition to lower prices. Now, President Trump can follow the advice of Candidate Trump by supporting this effective negotiation legislation.
– Rep. Lloyd Dogged (TX-35)

H.R. 1046The Medicare Negotiation and Competitive Licensing Act would authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to negotiate drug prices and, if drug companies refuse to negotiate in good faith, it would enable the Secretary to issue a competitive license to another company to produce the medication as a generic.
