Dear Commissioner Simons, Thank you for the opportunity to submit comment on this important topic. Attached you will find my comments regarding consolidation within the pharmaceutical supply chain and its impact on consumers. I encourage the FTC to study the horizontal and vertical consolidation involving Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) and other intermediaries, including payers, in the prescription drug market. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. Regards, Henry Waxman
