MEDICARE REFORM

Protecting Pharmaceutical Access and Services for Seniors Citizens throughout America

Over 35 million Americans receive drug benefits under Part D of the Medicare program.  In many respects, Medicare has been successful in improving access to vital medications for Senior Citizens and the disabled.

Join regulators, pharmacists, consumers and other experts in a lively discussion at the New America Foundation to discuss significant reforms proposed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to Part D and how these proposals will affect access and costs for millions of beneficiaries.
