White House Kills Plan for Drug Rebate Rule

  • Trump Administration Withdraws Drug Rebate Plan

Pharmaceutical tablets and capsules are arranged in the shape of a USA dollar sign on a table in this picture illustration taken August 20, 2014. "President (Donald) Trump will consider using any and all tools to ensure that prescription drug costs will continue to decline".

The drug price proposal would have effectively banned drug makers from providing rebates to pharmacy benefit managers and insurers - a radical change in the way many drugs are priced and paid for in Medicare and Medicaid.

It also raises questions about whether the administration's other efforts to lower prices will affect the pharmaceutical industry more directly. CVS Health Corp. and Cigna Corp. both jumped more than 7 percent, and UnitedHealth Group Inc. rose 4 percent while broader markets advanced slightly at the start of trading.

HHS previously said that the rule would counteract incentives behind higher list prices; now, when a list price rises, patients who pay a percentage or all of the list price for a drug see their out-of-pocket expenses increase while PBMs reap financial rewards.

Pharmaceutical company shares fell, with Merck & Co, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co and Pfizer Inc all off more than 2%.

Baird analyst Eric Coldwell said Trump was likely refocusing his reform efforts on the pharmaceutical companies themselves.

"There are still many headwinds for the supply chain, but today's news clearly rerates the space higher".

Earlier a federal judge ruled that the administration lacked the legal authority to require drugmakers to disclose list prices in their TV ads.

"Shelving the rebate reform initiative, which pharma strongly supported, feels like payback", Coldwell added.

The Trump administration abandoned a controversial proposal that would have overhauled the rebate system, according to The Hill. And legislators, including House Speaker Nany Pelosi, are pushing for new laws to allow the government to negotiate drug prices directly with manufacturers. Instead, drug companies would have been encouraged to pass the discounts directly to patients at the pharmacy counter. Trump last week said his administration is working on an executive order to tie drug prices in USA government health programs to the rates paid by other industrialized nations. That pushback stiffened after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that the plan would have little effect on manufacturer prices and would cost Medicare $177 billion over 10 years by leading to higher premiums subsidized by taxpayers.

"CBO is wrong in that it fails to account for the lower cost of prescription drugs that consumers will have access to if this rule is implemented", Braun said in a statement to The Journal Gazette.

JP Morgan analyst Gary Taylor said in a note that political momentum had been building against the rebate rule "due to the perceived unintended windfall profits that might have accrued to pharmaceutical manufacturers".

The White house did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment.

Administration officials and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar disagreed on whether the rebate rule would be worth the approximately $180 billion it would cost the government over a decade.

"Based on careful analysis and thorough consideration, the president has made a decision to withdraw the rebate rule", White House spokesperson Judd Deere told The Hill.

"Based on careful analysis and thorough consideration, the president has chose to withdraw the rebate rule", Deere said.
