Ranker pushes for transparency on prescription drug costs

Consumers could know the actual costs it takes to produce the prescription medicines they need, under legislation introduced today by Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-Orcas Island.

“People who rely on prescription drugs for their health are finding them increasingly expensive to purchase, even with a copay,” Ranker said. “Consumers should have the confidence that the manufacturer is charging a fair price and not an inflated price.”
