Anthem and Eli Lilly Announce Collaborative Effort to Combat High Cost Drugs

Today, Anthem and Eli Lilly announced a new collaborative initiative aimed at finding a solution to the high cost of prescription drugs. In response, John Rother, executive director of the Campaign for Sustainable Rx Pricing issued the following statement:

“I am encouraged to see Eli Lilly and Anthem begin a dialogue around increasing prescription drug prices. Their collaboration illustrates the widespread effort needed to find a sustainable, market-based solution, but it is just one step on a long road. It’s time now for more industry leaders to join the conversation and relieve the financial strain these costs place on families, businesses, government budgets, and our health care system.”
