Biden delivers remarks on lowering health care costs including inhalers: Watch live

Recorded earlier

President Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will speak with reporters Wednesday at the White House to highlight the capping of costs for inhalers by several pharmaceutical makers.

Sanders joined other Democrats in the Senate in a letter to drug manufacturers calling for a review of prices for the breathing treatment devices. In one case, a prescription inhaler came with a price tag of $645 for Americans — 13 times higher than consumers the United Kingdom were paying.

Out-of-pocket costs for an inhaler will now top out at $35 for many U.S. patients.

Biden and Sanders, joined by health professionals, will address the media starting at 11 a.m. EDT.
