1499, the Protecting Consumer Access to Generic Drugs Act.  This legislation prohibits the practice of “pay-for-delay,” in which brand name drug companies compensate generic drug manufacturers to delay the entry of cheaper drugs into the market.  Pay-for-delay

access through the widespread use of standing orders, which allow providers to write a single prescription that can be used by any individual.
