Arizona seniors are cheering for lower health care costs
Thanks to the work of President Joe Biden and Congress, seniors are finally starting to get the lower drug costs they deserve.
August 16 marked the one-year anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act, which lowers prescription drug and health coverage costs for millions of Americans. And finally, after 20 years of waiting, Arizona seniors are cheering the fact that Medicare will begin negotiating the prices of commonly-used, life-saving pharmaceuticals.
This is just the beginning. Soon, seniors’ out-of-pocket drug costs will be capped at $2,000 annually, and Medicare will finally be able to negotiate lower drug prices. This month, the Biden administration announced which 10 drugs were selected for the first round of price negotiations.
