The bill under discussion would authorize the Secretary of Health and Human Services to “negotiate” Medicare drug prices. “They have full leeway to basically decide what price they want the drug to be priced at,” AbbVie chairman Richard Gonzalez said on an earnings call on Friday. “This is not a negotiation. We should just call it what it is. It’s price controls.”
