"The proposed settlement would preserve competition in the markets for these important drugs and is part of the FTC's ongoing effort to protect U.S. consumers from higher heath care-related costs." Already, this is not the case in my situation. Express-Scripts has used Activis as my propranolol provider. Now, Express-Scripts has switched to Breckenridge and the generic cost to fill my prescription has jumped $20. That is a huge price increase for a generic drug! I do not see how this is helpful in controlling rising health care costs.
