Trump signed a bill lowering medical costs.

“If there’s anything bipartisan, it’s lowering drug prices,” Trump said, adding that signing the bill representing him delivering on his healthcare promises.

The first measure applies to people who are covered by private health insurance and goes into effect immediately. The second measure applies to patients who are covered by Medicare, the government program for adults 65 and older and for people with disabilities, and goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2020.

The “gag clauses” had forbidden pharmacists from telling customers when they could save money by paying the lower cash price instead of the price that had been negotiated by a health insurance plan.
