BALTIMORE (AP) - A group of Maryland health advocates is outlining some new plans to improve prescription drug affordability.
Maryland Citizens' Health Initiative is holding a news conference on Wednesday in Baltimore to talk about a proposal that would create a state commission to determine what Marylanders can pay for expensive drugs in order to make them more affordable.
The state Legislature last year passed a first-of-its-kind measure earlier this year empowering the state's attorney general to bring civil actions against manufacturers of off-patent drugs that make an "unconscionable" price increase.
