The details: New Year's Day traditionally has been a popular time for drug makers to hike prices.

 

This story from last January is almost identical to what is playing out again this year. Here are some of the increases in drugs' list prices, which do not include rebates:

 

  • AbbVie: Humira, a blockbuster drug with $15 billion in sales in the first 9 months of 2018 — ⬆️ 6.2%
  • Allergan: Many of its brand-name drugs, including dry-eye medication Restasis — ⬆️ 9.5%
  • Biogen: Multiple sclerosis drug Tecfidera — ⬆️ 6%
  • Bristol-Myers Squibb: Eliquis, a drug that prevents blood clots and is on pace for $6 billion in sales in 2018 — ⬆️ 6%
  • Eli Lilly: Type 2 diabetes medication Jardiance — ⬆️ 6%
  • Hikma Pharmaceuticals: Injectable pain reliever morphine — ⬆️ 10%
  • Teva: Similar to Allergan, many of its products — ⬆️ 9%

Defying Trump, drugmakers hike prescription drug prices for 2019

 

The United States has higher drug prices than in other countries where governments control the costs, making it the world's most lucrative market.

 

Nearly 30 drugmakers have taken steps to raise the prices of their medicines in January, ending a self-declared halt to increases made by a pharma industry under pressure from President Donald Trump.

 

The hikes, as seen in documents viewed by Reuters, will pose a new challenge to Trump's pledge to lower the costs of prescription medications in the world's most expensive pharmaceutical market.
