Crown Point – As Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita filed a lawsuit today in Lake County against Pharmacy Benefit Managers and drug companies for conspiring to raise prices on insulin medication, Lake County Councilman and Republican Congressional candidate, Randy Niemeyer (IN-01) issued the following statement:

“I stand firmly behind Attorney General Todd Rokita’s lawsuit against Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) and drug companies for their egregious conspiracy to inflate prices on insulin medication. This predatory behavior directly harms working and middle-class patients, forcing them to choose between essential medication and other basic necessities.

‘It’s high time we hold these entities accountable for their actions, which are lining their pockets at the expense of the health and well-being of our communities. I commend Attorney General Rokita for taking decisive action to combat this injustice and protect the interests of Indiana residents.

‘As your representative, I pledge to continue supporting efforts to rein in the power of PBMs and ensure fair pricing for prescription drugs. Together, we will fight to make healthcare more affordable for all Hoosiers,” stated Niemeyer.
