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.
