Tackling High Drug Prices Tops Agenda

Prescription Drugs

Reining in the high cost of prescription drugs will be a top priority for AARP Utah and its allies when state lawmakers reconvene on Monday, Jan. 27.

Many Utahns are torn between paying for housing and purchasing medications, with high drug costs disproportionately affecting older adults. Building on support that emerged in the last legislative session, AARP Utah is working with lawmakers to explore options that include importing some medications from Canada at a lower price and requiring more transparency about drug price hikes.

Members can become online activists and be notified when it’s important to let legislators hear their opinions. To learn more about key issues, to sign up as an e-activist or to volunteer for training on advocacy, go to aarp.org/getinvolved.
