Letter to Senators Wyden and Crapo on restructuring Medicare Part D

PAN urges the adoption of legislation to modernize the Medicare Part D benefit design to improve prescription medication access and reduce the financial burden on all beneficiaries.

Although extensive research demonstrates the favorable impact of Medicare Part D on access to prescription medications, the benefit design, along with other factors such as placement of certain drugs on specialty tiers, creates insurmountable barriers for Medicare beneficiaries and their ability to access needed treatments.
