Nevada joins a little-known, ambitious state consortium dedicated to better drug prices

After months of talks, the state of Nevada has joined a consortium formed by Oregon and Washington to pool purchasing power and get better prices on prescription drugs, the latest bid by a state government to try to blunt the rising cost of medicines.

The Northwest Prescription Drug Consortium, which began in 2006, claims to facilitate the purchase of more than $800 million in prescription drugs each year and saved at least 1 million people in Oregon and Washington nearly $100 million over the last six years. Members are given a discount card named ArrayRx Solutions.
