AARP Connecticut is calling on lawmakers to help fight the increasing prices of prescription drugs on Thursday.
They’re hosting a live, telephone town hall conversation with State Senator Matt Lesser and State Rep. Sean Scanlon Thursday to discuss the issue.
The United States has the highest brand-name drug prices in the world and many older residents are concerned about their ability to pay.
In 2017, one medication cost an average of $6,800 for one year.
Anyone can listen live via an online audio feed or on the AARP Connecticut Facebook page where they can submit questions during the call
