Seniors Oppose Government Price Setting In Medicare

Attention Seniors: Congress is set to vote on its reconciliation package that would give the government unprecedented price-setting powers within the Medicare Part D program. Allowing the government to interfere in this highly successful program would restrict beneficiaries’ access to a wide variety of medicines, jeopardizing seniors’ current and future treatment plans.

Lawmakers should instead prioritize senior-friendly policies that are designed to keep out-of-pocket costs low and predictable. If you are satisfied with your Medicare Part D plan and do not want to lose the coverage it provides, contact your lawmaker and tell them to abandon price-setting policies and protect the access seniors depend on under Part D.
