Live Coverage: Biden addresses efforts to decrease health care expenses

The cost cap for inhalers has been implemented by various pharmaceutical companies, and President Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are set to address reporters at the White House on Wednesday to bring attention to this issue. The aim is to make these essential breathing devices more affordable for Americans.

Sanders, along with other Senate Democrats, sent a letter urging drug manufacturers to reassess the pricing of inhalers. This move was prompted by the significant price difference between one inhaler in the U.S., which cost $645, and what consumers in the United Kingdom were paying, which was significantly less.

In response to this call for change, patients in the U.S. will no longer have to pay more than $35 out-of-pocket for an inhaler. This is a significant step towards ensuring that all Americans can afford essential medications they need to stay healthy.

President Biden and Senator Sanders, along with health professionals, will be addressing the media at 11:00 a.m. EDT to discuss this initiative further.
