Medicare Drug Prices - Negotiations Act Would Lower Costs

I read this informative Medicare Rights Center blog post by Julie Carter (dated 10-26-17) and thought I’d share it.

Pasted below is an excerpt:

"Currently, the HHS Secretary is not allowed to negotiate drug prices in the Medicare program, though drug prices are negotiated in the Medicaid program as well as in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.”1

Can you believe that in this day and age that Medicare Drug Costs (with all the volume and clout of the U.S. government) are still not allowed to be negotiated, even though other departments of the U.S. government such as, Medicaid and the VA, are allowed to negotiate prices? No wonder the prescription drugs costs have skyrocketed for Medicare prescription drugs over the last several years!

Note: Medicare Insurance information can be overwhelming and confusing to many people. As an independent licensed agent I can explain things to you in simple terms so you feel comfortable making a decision. Then I can help you choose and enroll in a plan that you feel fits your needs.

By the way, it doesn’t cost you any more if you enroll in a Medicare Insurance plan through me as an independent agent versus directly with an insurance company either over the phone or via the Internet, since I get paid by the insurance companies for your enrollment. Plus you will have personalized service by a local agent. If you would like my assistance, please call me at 941-404-5334.

By calling this number, I understand I will be directed to a licensed insurance sales agent.
