There are several bipartisan federal policy proposals, like #HR4597 and #HR6179, cosponsored by CA representatives, that promote increased use of #biosimilars to benefit patients, providers, and budgets while preserving physician and patient choice.

Excellent panel at @SDChamber today discussing health care cost-savings possibilities like #biosimilars. CA has the potential to save hundreds of millions of dollars annually by increasing access to biosimilar medicines in the state.

An excellent synopsis and action plan to buy us some time. See charts showing impact on our healthcare system.

The future of R&D is at risk because of #HR3. Congress must reject this proposal, so future treatment innovations are available to the patients who need them the most. @HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats
