Increasing Access to Biosimilars Act

Thursday July 2, 2020

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.
