Help vulnerable seniors access their medications
Medicare Part D is supposed to help seniors manage the cost of their prescriptions. But too many of the most vulnerable seniors on Medicare – those with life-threatening conditions like cancer, HIV/AIDS, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis – are facing extreme co-pays because their medication falls onto a "specialty tier."
The Part D Beneficiary Appeals Fairness Act is a promising bi-partisan bill that would allow patients a chance to appeal this "specialty tiers" designation, giving seniors battling cancer and other chronic illnesses a way to get the medications they need without going bankrupt.
