Saturday on NewsHour Weekend, we present an investigation into so-called “pay for delay” deals between drug companies. The complicated deals happen after generic drug companies challenge the patents on brand-name drugs.
The settlements that follow include a date that the generic drug can enter the market, and in some cases, a payment of some type from brand company to the generic company.
According to the Federal Trade Commission, the deals cost consumers around $3.5 billion each year.
