Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden, R-Ore., said Wednesday that he is speaking with colleagues in the Senate on greater price transparency.
“There is a lack of transparency in pricing from one end to the other, in both pharmaceuticals and procedures,” Walden told reporters Wednesday.
Walden gave an example of laser eye surgery to improve eyesight called Lasik.
“You listen to the radio, and there are ads for Lasik eye surgery, and they tell you the price,” he said.
Cassidy told the Washington Examiner that he hopes to introduce legislation this week or next.
