A fed­er­al judge blocks Don­ald Trump's 'most fa­vored na­tion' drug pric­ing plan as the lease runs out on the White House

Don­ald Trump will leave the White House with­out any ma­jor drug pric­ing plan to his name.

A fed­er­al judge on Wednes­day agreed to is­sue a tem­po­rary re­strain­ing or­der against Trump’s con­tro­ver­sial “most fa­vored na­tion” plan, which Trump tried to push through in an ex­ec­u­tive or­der. The plan would have lim­it­ed Medicare re­im­burse­ments to what drug com­pa­nies are paid in oth­er af­flu­ent na­tions — which is cur­rent­ly far less than the pre­mi­ums avail­able in the US.
