Share your stories

The Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services is asking for the public's help before the 2022 public hearing on prescription drug prices. The department has set up a brief survey for consumers to share their stories about rising prescription drug prices. Drug prices play a major role in health care decisions of Oregonians and the cost of prescription drugs have steadily increased. The department wants to hear your stories about the increase in prescription drugs and how has it affected you and your family. You are encouraged to report on price increases you have experienced.
