Trump to Sign Bills Lifting Drug Price ‘Gag Orders’ on Pharmacists

Two bills that allow U.S. pharmacists to disclose drug prices to customers to help them save money are expected to be signed Wednesday by President Donald Trump.

Previously, pharmacists could not tell consumers if the cash price for a prescription was less than what they would pay using their insurance plan, NBC News reported.

That was due to “gag order” clauses in contracts between pharmacies and insurance companies or pharmacy benefit managers.
