Topic: Prescription drugs

Medicare’s prescription drug program, Part D, is an essential program that provides coverage for critical prescription medications. However, within the current Part D benefit structure, there is no true annual out-of-pocket (OOP) cap for beneficiary cost-sharing, which cause a significant financial burden for people with serious medical conditions like kidney failure. As Congress continues to consider legislation to pass, it is important that they include a redesign on the Part D program. Contact your elected officials today.
