Senator floats adding prescription drug comparison tool to EHRs
from Healthcare Dive
Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., wants to place a pop-up on providers' EHRs with prescription drug price information and alternative options, including different medications and pharmacies for pick-up. The intervention at the point of prescribing is meant to allow for comparison shopping. Wyden's loose three-pronged proposal also includes requiring public and private payers to give enrollees cost information via telephone or online tools, along with general information on out-of-network cost-sharing provisions of the patient's coverage. Concrete legislation will be released "at a later date," according to his office.
