Generic medicines are approved by the FDA to be bioequivalent with their brand-name counterpart and are usually obtainable at a substantial cost-savings when compared to brand-name drug. At the same time when healthcare expenditures are escalating at alarming rates, greater access to secure and efficient generic drugs can certainly help in reducing prescription medication expenditures for individuals and payers, Cahill said. AMCP supports legislative and regulatory changes that could promote the development and use of safe, comparative and efficacious generic medications and eliminate barriers to the entry of generic drugs into the marketplace.
