Live Coverage: Biden addresses efforts to decrease health care expenses

President Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are set to address reporters at the White House on Wednesday to bring attention to the cost cap for inhalers implemented by various pharmaceutical companies. The aim is to make these essential breathing devices more affordable for Americans.

Sanders, along with other Senate Democrats, sent a letter urging drug manufacturers to reassess the pricing of inhalers. The cost of one inhaler in the U.S. was as high as $645, significantly more than what consumers in the United Kingdom were paying. This significant price difference prompted calls for change.

In an effort to make essential medications more accessible to Americans, patients will now not have to pay more than $35 out-of-pocket for an inhaler. This is a significant step towards ensuring that all Americans can afford the medications they need for their health.

President Biden and Senator Sanders, along with health professionals, will be addressing the media at 11:00 a.m. EDT to discuss this initiative further. The live video of this event can be watched above.
