FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn released the following statement in reaction to the release of Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan to lower the price of prescription drugs:

"Skyrocketing drug costs are causing a crisis for Americans who depend on their prescription medications. As reports have shown, the rapidly rising price of vital medications is driving up the costs of patient care for local hospitals.

"Hospitals are at the forefront of this fight and we appreciate Speaker Pelosi taking meaningful action to address drug costs. FAH looks forward to working with Congress to ensure our patients have access to affordable medications."
