Medicare Part D must be allowed to Negotiate Drug Prices

Since 2003 Medicare Part D has been prohibited by law from negotiating Drug prices. This is one of the primary reasons that pharmaceutical companies keep raising drug prices.. because they can with no consequences, dragging up the price of drugs for all. Changing this prohibition will go a long way to lower drug prices for all, not just medicare recipients.

Democrats “unveiled a bill to allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices, a key part of their agenda to lower pharmaceutical costs.”
