The Prescription Drug Price Transparency Act requires prescription drug manufacturers to report on new prescription drugs with a price exceeding $670 (the Medicare Part D specialty drug cost threshold). Once a drug report has been received, the department will post the name of the manufacturer and the prescription drug that is the subject of the filing.

Oregon’s Prescription Drug Price Transparency Program requires health insurance companies to report on prescription drugs in Oregon. Health insurance companies reported the 25 most prescribed drugs, the 25 most costly prescription drugs, and the 25 prescription drugs which caused the biggest increases in yearly health plan spending in 2018.
The program combined these lists to see which drugs were reported and ranked highest by the different insurers.
