Promoting Access to Affordable Prescription Drugs: Policy Analysis and Consumer Recommendations for State Policymakers, Consumer Advocates, and Health Care Stakeholders

ARxC has been fighting to have full access and reducing the high costs of prescription drugs. It looks at the skyrocketing costs for all medications and especially the most cutting-edge therapies.

Who is protecting the ethical and cost decisions for patient access to treatment?

I am going to introduce you to an organization that is supposed to be looking out for patients; keeping costs affordable, confirming people get the care they need and give recommendations that will improve their health. To help improve access to care and prevent economic hardship to patients, an academic research group called the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) was created at Harvard Medical School. ICER formed in 2006 as a blending of expertise in health care ethics and evidence-based medicine.
