In a Law360 article published on Feb. 12, health care partner Deborah Kantar Gardner (Boston) examines various state efforts to control drug prices and the constitutional and federal limits on those reforms.

The authors explain that state drug pricing laws take a variety of forms, ranging from importation to rate setting to price transparency.
