“AARP applauds Governor Whitmer’s announcement today seeking the creation of a Prescription Drug Affordability Board to address skyrocketing costs of prescription drugs. We know 58% of Michiganders report not filling a prescription because of the cost. There is no reason why Michiganders should continue to pay three times what other nations pay for the same drugs. Enough is enough. A Prescription Drug Affordability Board is the consumer watchdog we need to provide much-needed prescription drug price relief. AARP Michigan commends the current administration to right this wrong and urges the Legislature to make it happen. We also appreciate the administration’s ongoing efforts to support the 1.7 million family caregivers across the state.”

AARP Michigan today released a new survey identifying caregiving and financial security as top-of-mind issues for older Michiganders as the state and country head into the 2024 election season. Key findings reveal seven in ten (70%) Michigan residents are either currently providing care or have provided care in the past to an adult relative or friend. A whopping 90% of survey respondents support providing family caregivers with a tax credit to help offset caregiving expenses. And when it comes to Social Security, an impressive 91% want the money they’ve earned to be available to them in the future.
