The Senate is preparing to vote on whether to finally allow Medicare to negotiate for lower drug-prices, which would deliver real prescription drug price relief for millions of older Americans.
The budget reconciliation bill before the Senate now includes three key AARP priorities that will go a long way to lower drug prices and out-of-pocket costs. This includes:
- Finally allowing Medicare to negotiate the price of drugs.
- Capping out-of-pocket prescription drug costs in Medicare Part D at $2,000 each year.
- Holding drug companies accountable when they increase drug prices faster than the rate of inflation.
As Congress works to fight inflation, lowering drug prices is THE most important and long-overdue policy. The policies before the Senate now have broad bipartisan support among voters and would save taxpayers and Medicare billions of dollars. To learn more, visit www.aarp.org/rx
