President Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are set to address reporters at the White House on Wednesday to draw attention to the cost capping of inhalers by various drug companies. The goal is to make these essential breathing devices more affordable for Americans.

Sanders, along with other Senate Democrats, sent a letter urging drugmakers to reevaluate inhaler prices. This significant price difference has prompted calls for change. In the US, the cost of one inhaler can reach up to $645, significantly higher than what consumers in the United Kingdom pay.

From now on, patients in the US will not have to pay more than $35 out of pocket for an inhaler, making it more affordable for those who rely on these devices for their health. This is a significant step towards ensuring that all Americans can afford the essential medicines they need to stay healthy.

President Biden and Senator Sanders, along with health care providers, will discuss this initiative further during a live event at 11:00 a.m. EDT. You can watch it above.
