On this episode of the AEI Events Podcast, the Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar joins AEI to discuss the administration’s recent agenda on prescription drug prices.

The US health care system faces a crisis of cost, inefficiency, low value, and complexity. As the Trump administration and Congress work to reform health care, they should consider the innovative approaches developed by purchasers who cover more than half of all Americans — employer-sponsored health plans. Large employers have improved quality and controlled costs through patient engagement, provider payment reform, and delivery system improvement.

    I don’t understand the drug market, and I don’t know how to lower the costs, but Secretary Azar sounds like he knows what he’s doing.
