WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration Thursday unveiled a plan to channel now-hidden prescription drug rebates directly to patients, saying it would bypass middlemen and lower prices for consumers.
The proposed regulation from Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar would eliminate behind-the-scenes discounts among drugmakers, insurers and go-betweens and instead require that they be paid directly to consumers when they buy their medications.

Everybody knows me as one of the biggest Trump bashers on this board. However, I will also be the first to give him praise when he deserves it.

Well done, Mr. President.

This is really excellent news. Not only does it decrease prices, there's more transparency as a result for the consumers.
