Maryland health group highlighting drug affordability needs

BALTIMORE (AP) — A Maryland coalition is highlighting the need for more affordable prescription drugs.

The Maryland Citizens Health Initiative has scheduled a news conference Thursday in Baltimore. Members of the group are releasing a poll that they say shows support for three initiatives.

One would require companies to disclose the basis for high-cost drugs. Another would require companies to notify the public about steep price increases for prescription drugs. The other would give the state’s attorney general authority to take action against price gouging.

The coalition plans to push for legislation on the three initiatives in Maryland’s next legislative session.

The Maryland Citizens Health Initiative is a nonprofit advocacy group that brings together faith, community, labor, business and health care groups to focus on affordable health care in the state.
