Prescription Drug Price Transparency program

The Prescription Drug Price Transparency Act, enacted during the 2018 Legislative Session, established Oregon’s Drug Price Transparency program within the Department of Consumer and Business Services. The program is directed by the statute to:

  1. Increase transparency regarding prescription drug costs and prices from pharmaceutical manufacturers

  3. Provide consumers a way to notify the department on a prescription drug price increase
