New MAPRx Report Examines Medicare Part D Access and Affordability Issues
December 18, 2018
A new report released today on Medicare Part D found the program is as popular and robust as ever, but poses significant challenges to beneficiaries that result in increased out-of-pocket costs and limited access for millions of beneficiaries. The study, “Navigating Medicare Part D: Approaches to Addressing Beneficiary Affordability and Access Challenges
,” was commissioned by Medicare Access for Patients Rx (MAPRx), a coalition consisting of more than 55 patient, family caregiver, and health professional organizations committed to strengthening and protecting Medicare Part D. The National MS Society is a member of the MAPRx coalition and spoke at the “Medicare Part D: Affordability and Access Challenges” Capitol Hill briefing.
