New York Expands Drug Pricing Website:
"" New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer rolled out an expanded version of his drug pricing Web site yesterday, hoping to assist those New Yorkers lacking health insurance or prescription drug benefits to comparison shop. From Long Island Newsday:
The online reference guide includes the 25 most popular prescription drugs on the market, and, for the first time, has prices from pharmacies in all of the state’s 62 counties.
”With information from this Web site, consumers, especially seniors on fixed incomes, the uninsured and those lacking adequate prescription drug coverage, can comparison shop and keep their costs as low as possible,” Spitzer said in a prepared statement.
Under current New York State law, each pharmacy is required to carry an expanded version of this guide, known as the Drug Retail Price List, which covers nearly 150 prescription drugs, and customers are able to view it at any time.""
