October is American Pharmacists Month, so we speak with Georgia Representative Buddy Carter about how his experiences as a pharmacist inspired him to advocate for patients and providers in Congress. He shares how independent, rural pharmacies are being put out of business by PBMs, and how their closures would be catastrophic to patient access.
Hear from Yuri Cárdenas, a patient and migraine advocate, who contributed to a new report on PBMs, about the hurdles they have faced accessing and affording medication due to the work of middlemen.
Plus, hearing aids are now available over-the-counter, inflation impacts health care costs for patients, and a new report reveals over a million Americans rationed insulin within the past year.
Dr. Robert Goldberg, “Dr. Bob,” Co-Founder and Vice President of the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest
