Demo­cratic pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Martin O’Malley re­leased a health pol­icy plan that fo­cuses on bring­ing down prescription drug prices and con­tin­u­ing to re­duce the num­ber of the unin­sured.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

The can­di­date, who is con­sis­tently polling a dis­tant third to front-run­ners Hil­lary Clin­ton and Ver­mont Sen. Bernie San­ders, has a plan that is sim­i­lar to that of his party ri­vals. He stopped short, how­ever, of ad­vo­cat­ing for the sin­gle-payer sys­tem that San­ders touts. He also called for re­peal­ing the “Cadil­lac tax” on high-end in­sur­ance plans, giv­ing gov­ern­ment health pro­grams the power to ne­go­ti­ate drug prices and ex­pand­ing fund­ing for the Na­tional In­sti­tutes of Health.
