Washington state lawmaker introduces bill to cap insulin costs

A group of bills set to be proposed in the Washington state Senate would cap the price of insulin at $100 per 30-day supply. If passed, the legislation would allow Washington to conduct mass buyouts of insulin, control insulin costs, import prescription drugs for state employees, and create a pharmacy benefit board and pharmacy tourism board.
