The Biosimilars Council commends Senators Cornyn and Bennet for the introduction of the Increasing Access to Biosimilars Act. This bipartisan proposal is based on a simple idea – that Medicare policies should encourage the use of the most effective, lowest cost medicine. Biosimilars consistently deliver savings compared to high-priced brand biologics. We encourage Congress and the Administration to quickly implement this policy and deliver savings to America’s patients and taxpayers.
