On Tuesday April 2, the Oversight and investigations subcommittee of Energy and Commerce is holding a hearing investigating Insulin pricing https://energycommerce.house.gov/committee-activity/hearings/hearing-on-priced-out-of-a-lifesaving-drug-the-human-impact-of-rising
Team: we need to and HAMMER them with calls.
Put their numbers in your phone find 3 friends to do the same. Tell them to call and to have people call tomorrow and Monday to say:
“Insulin costs so much, because of GPO and PBM rebates. stand for people over profits, and make PBM and GPO kickbacks illegal.”
It’s NOT enough to support the HHS PBM rebate Rule, not enough to support S. 657 The Drug Price Transparency Act (S. 657), intro by Senator Braun of Indiana.
April 1, in the Library of Congress, Physician and Patient Advocacy Leaders will be telling the world exactly this on LIVE STREAM! The meeting attendees represent over 30,000 physicians. Lawmakers are most welcome to attend or send your Health Care Aide Congress must introduce and support a bill that repeals GPO kickbacks as well as PBM !!
How can anyone possibly support legalized kickbacks for GPO/PBM Pharma Middlemen who do no Research, no manufacturing and distribute no product?” The only ENDURING solution for safe affordable medications like insulin is full repeal of the legalized kickbacks enjoyed by BOTH PBM AND GPO. Remember, congress, you work for US!!!!
Tweeters can tweet and retweet right @ those lawmakers and @potus, @pence @senatorbraun, etc:
