Another win: Biden Stops Trump Order To Slash Price Of Insulin, EpiPen

President Joe Biden’s United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on Thursday stopped executive orders from his predecessor designed to significantly lower prescription drug prices for Americans, including insulin and epinephrine.

The new administration will apparently re-evaluate the executive action from President Donald Trump toward the end of March. It remains unclear if it will be reinstated.

“The HHS Thursday froze the former Trump administration’s December drug policy that requires community health centers to pass on all their insulin and epinephrine discount savings to patients,” Bloomberg Law reportedThursday. “Centers that don’t pass on the savings wouldn’t qualify for federal grants.”

“This freeze is part of the Biden administration’s large-scale effortannounced this week that will scrutinize the Trump administration’s health policies,” the report noted. “If the previous administration’s policies raise ‘fact, law, or policy’ concerns, the Biden HHS will delay them and consult with the Office of Management and Budget about other actions.”

The hate continues even if it hurts citizens.

This is his start towards Universal Health Care. He would put Bernie in charge ofbthat.

Universal healthcare, the ACA didn’t work out so all for them. Universal healthcare would be their downfall as it trashes the healthcare system as well as costing trillions in additional debt. Not that thy care about the deficit or debt.

He’s no proponent of that, and it’s not in his platform…:man_shrugging:
