Take Action Now to Rein in High Rx Prices!

Too many people struggle to pay for drugs and end up waiting to fill a prescription, taking less medication to make it last longer, or deciding to not fill the prescription at all. Unless costs come down, people will not be able to afford the drugs they need, leading to poorer health and higher health care costs.

Please tell your state legislators that NOW is the time to act on the high and rising costs of prescription drugs. They are considering legislation to develop mechanisms to rein in prescription drug costs, but they need to hear from you.

If you have a personal story about how you have been affected by the high and rising costs of prescription drugs, please edit the message to include your story so they know how this could help everyday Oregonians.

Please rein in the high cost of prescription drugs

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing today to urge you to take action now to address the high and increasing costs of prescription drugs. Too many people struggle to pay for drugs and end up waiting to fill a prescription, taking less medication to make it last longer or deciding to not fill the prescription at all. Unless costs come down, people will not be able to afford the drugs they need, leading to poorer health and higher health care costs.



We need action now. Please support legislation this session to address the high cost of prescriptions in Oregon. Thank you.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
