I'm Geoff Colvin. A fortune magazine with inside business just after the new year three dozen drugmakers raised prices on more than two hundred fifty prescription drugs. But those prices the ones we hear so much about our list prices the net prices of many of those drugs are falling as big pharma companies are offering more rebates or discounts to middleman. Why those middlemen are powerful because they manage the buying of prescription drugs for health plans, if the health plans charge patients lower copays for certain drugs, then more of those drugs. We'll get bought so drug makers are incentivized to give rebates to prescription managers. So their drugs will be given advantages like lower patient copays. The result is that prices after rebates are going down Novartis recently. Told investors it expects net prices to fall this year. Pfizer analogous, say. Their net. Prices will likely be flat, so fee expects flat or falling crisis. Sounds good for consumers yet that isn't actually clear the system of pharmaceutical distribution in the US is so convoluted that it's impossible to say for sure whether consumers will end up paying less in total for prescription drugs.
