Pharmaceutical companies have invaded Vermont with a lobbying and advertising blitz that’s spreading false information in order to scare doctors, patients and Vermont legislators. Unless we act fast these underhanded tactics may derail an important consumer protection part of our healthcare bill.
Please take a moment to leave a message for your Senators asking them to keep the drug sample reporting requirement in S.88, the health care bill. Just call 802-828-2228 right now.
As passed by the House the bill (S.88) requires drug companies to come clean with our Attorney General and report all drug samples they give to doctors. This would allow us to make sure these corporations aren’t using the samples to gain undue influence with doctors. By opposing the drug sample reporting requirement, the pharmaceutical companies are proving they have something to hide.
