A bill now filed in the Senate would finally simplify the Medicare drug plan. Its about time lawmakers started to focus on this.
I just wrote to my Senators and told them to get this bill moving.
The Medicare drug benefit is extremely confusing for seniors and their families, due to the scores of private plans and the confusing price structure. The new Senate proposal will help make the Medicare drug benefit much simpler by offering an alternative a Medicare-operated drug plan that will have predictable premiums, co-pays and a dependable list of covered drugs. It will also save taxpayers money by allowing Medicare to negotiate the best possible drug prices for seniors--just as the VA does for veterans.
Please take a second to help me get this ball rolling!
