The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed a dangerous new policy—known as International Pricing Index (IPI) Model—that would import alarming policies from foreign governments with socialized health care systems.
The proposal could block access to life-saving drugs for America’s seniors, inhibit the research and development necessary to discover new treatments, and threaten our nation’s free-market health care system — currently one of the best in the world.
Tell HHS: Drop the foreign drug pricing proposal now.
America’s seniors get access to new treatments faster than anyone. By importing drug prices from foreign countries, we will end up importing their limited access, too. Below, compare the number of new drugs introduced in the United States to the nations proposed for the index.
