Johnson & Johnson files a lawsuit to halt Medicare negotiations.

Johnson & Johnson became the third pharmaceutical company to sue the Biden administration over its new Medicare drug price negotiation program on Tuesday.

J&J joins a spate of lawsuits challenging the Medicare drug price negotiation program, which is scheduled to begin in the autumn. Merck, Bristol-Myers Squibb, PhRMA, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have also filed suit. In 2026, the negotiated prices would become effective.
