Sep 15, 2023

by Liz Gullett

As MLC’s Communications and Social Media Manager, Liz Gullett keeps clients informed and up-to-date on the goings on in Lansing and the Capitol.

Legislation was introduced creating a Prescription Drug Affordability Board in Michigan (PDAB). The three-bill package was introduced by Senator Darrin Camilleri (D-Trenton), Senator Kristen McDonald Rivet (D-Bay City), and Senator Veronica Klinefelt (D-Eastpointe).

Key Points:

    • PDAB would research, review, and establish upper payment limits on the most expensive prescription drugs.
    • The limit would apply to all purchases and payments for that specific drug intended for sale in Michigan.
    • Nonpartisan leaders in economics, health care, the supply chain, and academics with no personal or financial stake in the pharmaceutical industry would be appointed to the board.
    • Six states have established a PDAB and additional states are in the process of creating a board.

Next Step:

    • The legislation was referred to the Senate Finance, Insurance, and Consumer Protection Committee for consideration.
