In PriceGouging Investigation Oversight Committee Calls For GenericDrug Information From FDA

first_img Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday requesting documents and information on the agency’s process for reviewing generic drug applications. The lawmakers called the request part of its investigation into high prescription drug prices. The letter, signed by Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and 12 other Republicans, said the committee questions the efficiency of the FDA’s approval process for generic drugs, which has slowed since the agency began collecting user fees from generic drugmakers in 2013. The committee suggested that if this process were faster, it could help spur competition and drive down prices.
