This bill would require the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prioritize review of over-the-counter contraceptives that would be available to individuals age 18 or older without a prescription. It would apply to supplemental drug applications, which are used to change the approved use of a drug.
The FDA would also waive user fees for related supplemental drug applications, and any drug that’s eligible for priority review must be available as a prescription drug for individuals under age 18.
Provisions in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would be repealed so that health savings accounts and health flexible spending accounts can be used to pay for medicine without a prescription. Additionally, the limit on salary reduction contributions under a cafeteria plan would be eliminated. Both reforms would be effective as if the provisions had never been enacted in the first place.
