The Rising Costs of Prescription Drugs

What's really causing the costs of dermatology prescriptions, especially generics, to skyrocket? Jake Levitt, MD and Mark Lebwohl, MD speak to host Neal Bhatia, MD about what's influencing these rising costs, and who, if anyone, is benefiting. Dr. Levitt talks about the rebate system between manufacturers and the middlemen—the wholesalers, chain pharmacies, etc.—with costs being passed on to consumers. Dr. Lebwohl offers an update on what the AAD is working on to try to solve this problem to help make drugs in dermatology more affordable.
