WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is rolling out a major report on the prices paid by federal programs for prescription drugs — but it has one big flaw, in the eyes of the Democrats who helped push for it.
The report, from the Department of Health and Human Services, does not lay out exactly how much each government program paid for each unit of medicine. Members of Congress who asked for the report had hoped to compare the prices paid by Medicare, Medicaid, and Veterans Affairs.
This would explain why one very popular ‘Part D’ raised it’s monthly premiums by 20 percent, effective Jan 1, 2017.
