Yes on Ohio Drug Price Relief Act: Lower Drug Prices

Ohio

What would the initiative do? The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) negotiates drug prices with pharmaceutical companies and pays an average of 20 to 24 percent less for prescription drugs than other government agencies. 

Voting ‘YES’ on this measure would allow the state of Ohio and its state agencies, including the Ohio Department of Medicaid, to pay the same prices for prescriptions drugs as the VA.
