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

This is a historic moment for millions of older Americans, and you can help by letting your Senators know that this issue is important to you.
