The 7 Key Questions About the Schwarzenegger/Nunez Health Care Compromise
Date:9/5/2007

will reap a captive customer base while preserving too much leeway over what they can charge. There should at least be a stop-gap measure to protect against gouging in the event that the negotiations fail to produce a fair result. For example, your Cal-Rx program would have excluded drug companies from the lucrative Medicaid market if they refused to provide adequate discounts for the public.

7. Will a statewide prescription drug bulk purchasing pool be required or

simply allowed?

We are encouraged to see that amendments to AB 8 would give the state permission to create a prescription drug bulk-purchasing program. As written, the drug pool could include individuals in the state insurance pool, any employers and any state, county, or other public or governmental agency that wishes to join.

Yet the governor's line-item veto of start-up funding for Cal-Rx, an earlier drug discount plan sponsored by both of you, shows that such drug affordability measures must be required and immediate. Otherwise they will always fall victim to pharmaceutical company pressure and budget shortfalls.

Further, to maximize bulk purchasing power and provide discounts to those who need them most, all Californian should be allowed to join the prescription drug program.

The answers to these questions are vital for the public to understand the details of what could be an eleventh-hour backroom deal in which lobbyists have the only input on. We appreciate your response.

Sincerely,

Jamie Court Jerry Flanagan Judy Dugan
