AARP Statement on Governor's Bill for Prescription Drug Marketing Reform and Transparency
Date:5/15/2008

most expensive drugs, New Yorkers - whether as patients or taxpayers - may not always obtain the most beneficial and cost-effective drug available.

For several years, AARP has been tracking the price of prescription drugs. AARP's Rx Watchdog reports have revealed startling trends over the past six years. Brand name prescription drug costs are steadily rising at close to double and even triple the rate of inflation.

AARP firmly believes that evidence-based research should be the guide to prescribing the most effective prescription drugs, not gifts from manufacturers to physicians. Drugs should be prescribed based on their effectiveness in treating a medical condition - not because they are new and in many cases more expensive.
