President Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will hold a press conference at the White House on Wednesday to discuss the recent efforts by several pharmaceutical companies to cap costs for inhalers. Senator Sanders, along with other Senate Democrats, sent a letter to drug manufacturers urging them to review the prices of inhalers, as some were being sold in the U.S. for up to $645, significantly higher than prices in other countries.

As a result of these efforts, the out-of-pocket costs for inhalers will now be limited to $35 for many patients in the United States. This move is expected to provide relief to those who rely on inhalers for their respiratory health.

President Biden and Senator Sanders will be joined by healthcare professionals during the press conference, which is scheduled to start at 11:00 a.m. EDT. The event will be livestreamed, allowing the public to hear directly from the officials involved in these important developments.
