Congresswoman DeLauro to release report on high drug prices


Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro will be holding a press conference Friday on how the high cost of diabetes drugs has an impact on residents in the state.

DeLauro says in particular it affects seniors on Medicare and the uninsured in the Connecticut’s third district.

The report also shows that because Medicare is not allowed to negotiate drug prices, the costs are much higher here then in other countries.

DeLauro will also discuss President Trump’s decision to eliminate the Affordable Care Act and the impact that will have on diabetics and their families.

She is set to release the findings at 9:30 a.m. at the Miller Senior Center in Hamden.
