Morning Consult ran a poll, on behalf of PhRMA, focusing on health care issues and potential policy solutions states could enact to tackle health care cost and affordability challenges. This poll was conducted from March 29 – April 4, 2022, among a national sample of 20,000 adults. The interviews were conducted online.

KEY FINDINGS

  • Nearly all Americans, across all states, agree that lowering out-of-pocket costs for health care should be a top priority for policymakers.
  • The most popular solutions to lower prescription drug costs are requiring that health insurers and PBMs to pass along rebates and discounts to patients and require them to cover certain medications to treat chronic conditions from day one.
  • Most Americans reject government price setting of medicines, such as prescription drug affordability boards, once they learn about tradeoffs.
