The Hill: Medicare beneficiaries can’t wait for lower drug prices

The pandemic has been especially hard on Medicare beneficiaries, putting an added burden on an already strained population.

Amy Niles, Executive Vice President at the PAN Foundation, co-authored this opinion piece with Michael Ward, Vice President of Public Policy at the Alliance for Aging Research.
