Tell Your Senator: Pass Build Back Better to Lower Drug Prices
By Andrew Soergel, December 6, 2021 03:36 PM
The U.S. House of Representatives has passed the Build Back Better bill, which would lower prescription drug prices for tens of millions of Americans, and you can help make sure it passes in the Senate and becomes law.
The bill would lower drug prices by:
- Allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices
- Capping out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs covered by Medicare Part D
- Guaranteeing that Medicare beneficiaries only pay $35 per month for insulin
- Penalizing pharmaceutical companies that increase drug prices more than inflation
The bill’s fate in the Senate is uncertain. Use our website to easily send a message to your senator to pass Build Back Better.
