New ‘dashboard’ shows high cost of Medicare drugs
The Hill

The Obama administration on Monday released an “online dashboard” giving the public tools to explore data around high-cost prescription drugs.

The release comes as the administration explores how to combat rising drug prices.

The new dashboard allows users to compare spending on 80 drugs that have cost Medicare significant amounts of money in 2014. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which released the dashboard, says it is trying to increase transparency around drug prices amid rising scrutiny.
