Washington, DC (April 30, 2019) – Healthcare Supply Chain Association (HSCA) President and CEO
Khatereh Calleja today released the following statement applauding the House Judiciary Committee
members for voting to advance the CREATES Act (H.R. 965):
“The Healthcare Supply Chain Association (HSCA) and its member group purchasing organizations
(GPOs) applaud Chairman Nadler, Ranking Member Collins, and the members of the House Judiciary
Committee for helping to increase competition in the generic drug marketplace by voting to advance the
CREATES Act. Americans rely on generic drugs to reduce costs and increase access to necessary
medication, and price spikes for commonly used drugs jeopardize patient access to care. HSCA supports
policy solutions like the CREATES Act that lower drug prices, encourage competition and innovation in
the marketplace, and end anti-competitive abuses utilized by some brand-name manufacturers. We
urge the House to quickly pass the CREATES Act to protect patient access to essential medications.”
