Prescription Drug Affordability Board (PDAB)

About the PDAB

Senate Bill 844 created the Prescription Drug Affordability Board (PDAB) to evaluate the cost of prescription drugs and determine whether they present an affordability challenge to consumers and health systems in Oregon. PDAB’s review will inform rulemaking criteria for evaluating drugs that will include health inequities for communities of color, the number of Oregon residents that are prescribed the drug, the price of the drug in Oregon, and other criteria required by law. It will also study the entire prescription drug distribution and payment system in Oregon, as well as other states and countries, that are designed to lower the list price of prescription drugs and make recommendations to the legislature.
