A unique state board in Maryland that will investigate and work to bring down the cost of overly expensive prescription drugs is meeting for the first time Monday in Annapolis.

The Maryland Prescription Drug Affordability Board was created through legislation that was passed last year in the General Assembly.

It is “an independent body with the authority to evaluate expensive drugs and recommend appropriate methods for addressing these costs,” according to the Maryland Citizens’ Health Initiative Education Fund, an advocacy group that supported the legislation.
