Big Pharma and health insurance companies have spent many years lobbing accusations back and forth, each assigning the other the lion’s share of the blame for high prescription drug prices and increasing healthcare costs. A recent news release by the pharmaceutical industry’s lobby group PhRMA is one of the latest shots in this battle. PhRMA says that the main driver of health insurance premium increases is higher cost hospital spending not prescription drugs prices as the insurers claim. PhRMA contends that health insurance companies have taken advantage of the recent uproar over high drug prices to justify their premium increases this year.
