October 29, 2018

President Trump on October 24 signed the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act (H.R. 6), which together with the Patient Right to Know Drug Prices Act (S. 2554), signed October 10, expands the scope of pharmaceutical product-related agreements subject to filing requirements under subtitle B of Title XI of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA).
