15 OHIO DOCTORS WHO MAKE A SWEET LIVING AS DRUG INDUSTRY PITCHMEN
Meanwhile Ohioans Struggle to Pay for Rising Drug Prices
COLUMBUS – Public records show dozens of Ohio doctors during 2016 were each paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by drug companies to moonlight as virtual salespersons for the companies’ overpriced drugs. The same companies also paid for hundreds of meals, drinks, hotel rooms and air plane tickets for these doctors.
As spokesman for Issue 2, the November 2017 Ohio ballot measure to lower drug prices, said voters need to be aware of how much money the drug industry spends to influence the medical community.
