PhRMA Says Law Is Unconstitutional


The US drug industry trade association PhRMA is suing the state of Minnesota in an attempt to overturn a law that requires insulin makers to provide an emergency supply to individuals free of charge.

The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers Association (PhRMA) filed the complaint in the US District Court in Minnesota on July 1, the day the Alec Smith Insulin Affordability Act went into effect.

The law created the Minnesota Insulin Safety Net Program, which is continuing to operate in the meantime.

Advocates said they were appalled by the PhRMA action.
