Johnson & Johnson to Display Medication Costs in TV Ads

Do you know the base price for the prescription medications you take?

Many probably don’t know the total cost, but one drug company will be more transparent on the costs of its medications. 

Johnson & Johnson will start displaying the list price of prescription drugs in upcoming advertisements aired on television, The Associated Press reported.

The move comes as President Donald Trump’s administration proposed to require the pharmaceutical companies show prices on their ads.
